Jonathon Lowbush Organic Blueberry Plant
This wild, lowbush blueberry was originally collected in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, in Keweenaw County, near Rice Lake. The weather along the shores of Gran Traverse Bay is snowy and cold in the winter, but these plants survive our snow-less winters here in Indiana just fine. Jonathon came from a population of lowbush (V. pensylvanicum) blueberry growing in this northern MI county, where almost every kind of Eastern, ericaceous (the plant family blueberries are in) plant can be found. Berries are sweet, plentiful, and of the wild size (small). Height in cultivation is about 18-24″ tall and very compact and bushy. Beautiful green, tiny leaves in summer and deep burgundy red for fall color with leaves held for a long time in the fall. Tolerates partial shade but will be most productive in full sun. Selected and originally propagated by Dan Hartmann.
Hardy in USDA zones 3-7
