‘Northland’ has been hybridized to adapt to the very northern climates of our country. It has flexible branches which do not break under heavy snow loads and adapts well in the sub-zero climate. Fruit is borne on long and loose clusters. The quality of the fruit is moderately firm and has a nice wild berry flavor. This is also a great ornamental bush. A low stature and spreading growth habit make it an attractive landscape plant. Blueberry plants are also great for wildlife! The flowers provide nectar for native bees, butterflies, and other pollinators. The fruit is loved by birds and other wildlife.
Blueberries are naturally high in antioxidants! This fast growing fruit is extremely nutritious and has a high vitamin content. Blueberries are excellent in pies and make delicious jams and preserves. Best of all, bake your own blueberry muffins! Blueberries are rapidly increasing in interest due to their reliability and health benefits.
Like all blueberries, it must have moist, acidic soil to flourish. Set plants out as early as possible in the spring. Prune branches back about 1/2 their length at planting time with no further pruning required the next 3 years. Prune annually thereafter, during the dormant period.
