Vaccinium corymbosum 'Bluegold'
Blueberries are well-shaped, upright and vigorous plants with dark green foliage. In addition to the berries, blueberries are beautiful ornamental, native shrubs with spring flowers and fall color. They can be included in the landscape as either a single planting, hedge/border or in areas such as native gardens and woodlands. They also make nice container plants for a patio or deck. Blueberry plants are very hardy and long-lived. They prefer organically rich, medium to wet, well-drained acidic soils in full sun to part shade.
The Bluegold blueberry is a compact, rounded bush growing to 4’x4’. It would be a good choice if you don’t have a lot of room for a blueberry plant. It is cold hardy down to a USDA zone 4, -30f to -20f. It has an 800-1000 chill hours requirement, so it would be a good choice for a more northern garden. It produces a large crop of firm and flavorful berries in mid-season. It has large, full clusters of berries that are perfect for fresh eating. It has nice fall colors ranging from yellow to red and purple.
