Brunswick Lowbush Blueberry

Vaccinium angustifolium Midseason. 1x2' Released from Kentville Stn, NS, Canada, c. 1975. Chance seedling found growing in a native stand of lowbush blueberries in a commercial field in New Brunswick, just north of us.

Vigorous and prolific with up to 20 fruits per branch tip. Large light blue berries have that sweet lowbush flavor. Blueberry growers in Maine usually don’t bother with the “lowbush” distinction; to them, this is the only true blueberry. Folks from away may know these berries from the grocery freezer, labeled Maine Wild Blueberries.

Though plants and berries are diminutive, the taste is supreme. Lustrous blue-green medicinal foliage is good in teas and turns an amazing combination of bronze, orange and scarlet in the fall. Grown in Maine long before Europeans came downeast, blueberries are still a local favorite and cultivated on thousands of acres.

Spreads by seed and rhizomes. Transplants will gradually form colonies but can be slow to get established. Native to northeastern U.S. Z3. (1–2' plugs)
