    More Information

    Description ‘Patriot’ Blueberry is one of the larger and earlier blooming blueberry varieties, featuring soft, pleasant-tasting light blue berries. Its harvest times are short but sweet, producing large intermittent quantities of delicious and versatile blueberries. They love the sun, but if temperatures are too hot they’ll require some shade. Best suited for Zones 4-7. Like other blueberry shrubs, ‘Patriot’ blueberry is cold-tolerant and self-pollinating but can benefit from being planted around other blueberry bushes. Try planting in a container and enjoy delicious fruit right from your patio!

    Wondering how to grow blueberries in your garden? There are a few key requirements for success! ‘Patriot’ blueberry grows in extremely high acidic soil (pH 4.5 to 6.8) due to its highbush nature. Growing them in basic soil will lead to discoloration and low berry production. If your garden isn't acidic, don't worry. Just use organic acid fertilizer (like azalea fertilizer) or sulfur to adjust the pH. Growing them in containers makes this even easier! Make sure they're watered frequently and deeply to keep the soil moist. Learn more on how to grow blueberries in the "how to grow" tab.
    Details Botanical name: Vaccinium corymbosum 'Patriot'
    Common name: Blueberry, High bush blueberry
    Zone: 4 - 7
    Sun exposure: Full sun (6+ hours sun) to part sun (4-6 hours sun)
    Height x width: 4-6' tall and wide
    Flower color: White
    Foliage color: Green
    Season of interest: Late summer
    Bloom time: Late spring
    Features: Native, heat tolerant, fall color, container plants, wet soils
    Uses: Edible garden, container plant, native garden, hedge, specimen
    How To Grow Soil: Requires acidic soils (pH 4 to 5) that are well-draining and high in organic matter. Test your soil pH before planting, as soil that is not acidic will discolor leaves, slow growth, and kill the plant.
    Light: Thrives in full sun (> 6 hours sun) but tolerates part sun (4-6 hours sun).
    Water: Keep the soil moist but not too wet. We suggest watering frequently and deeply.
    Spacing: minimum 3 feet apart
    Fertilizing: In spring, apply an organic acid fertilizer, like those recommended for azaleas. If leaves are discolored or growth is slow, test the soil and apply more fertilizer or sulfur-based soil amendment.
    Winterizing: Apply a thick layer of mulch around the base of the plants for insulation. Do not prune before winter.
    Maintenance & pruning: Prune plants in early spring before growth starts to promote vigorous growth. Fruit is only produced on one-year-old wood, which means stimulating new shoot growth each spring is required for more berry production. However, pruning too aggressively will have the opposite effect.

    So far so good

    Planted late in the season but the plant seems to have taken well and I expect more growth next year.

    Most did ok

    Maybe my fault but unsure why 2/3 bleeding hearts are still alive and Susan b isn't liking sun. Blueberry and 2/3 bleeding hearts look great! I'd buy from again.
