This year was an incredible blueberry production year. We harvested 5 - 6 gallons from 3 year old bushes and they put on a significant amount of growth. I’m hoping to get even more berries next year. All of our fruit trees have dropped their leaves and gone dormant but the blueberries are just starting to shine:
I think they make great landscape plants. Mine have a nice red fall color and even the summer color of the leaves are nice. I think they look good when flowering as well and make a great deciduous hedge.
I’m into edible landscaping, but tend to error on the edible side. Sure a few say…figs in good locations look good, but I got 25 of them, and well, not so nice looking now! LOL!
The more ornamental blueberry bushes are nice, here though it is a challenge as they will not grow in native soil. I still have 8 plants in raised beds, or containers. Also they are often one sided bushes, not even or symmetrical, some cultivars are very well shaped. I have Cara’s Choice as the taste is exceptional, and leaves are blue-green. It is pretty, but is rather uneven in growth. So for me it’s a mixed bag. My neighbor has burning bushes, and this other bush that is amazing looking. Not sure what it is? So his landscaping looks just awesome, I like to look at it as I eat my blueberries
I agree, they grow in odd shapes, some do. With age they would look decent though. I made a hedge with cornus mas. I saw a formal hedge, and it was perfect, so I decided to try. It’s taking years, it will work, but it is taking foerver 5th year, and only at 5 feet. This is the hedge, I forget where it is at? I grabbed this off the interenet.
