Southern Highbush Type Bushes

These are hybrids of blueberries which grew wild when European settlers first arrived in the New World. New Southern Highbush cultivars were developed to grow in California and other climates with low chill hours. Southern Highbush blueberries are low chill varieties and offer gardeners in California, the Sunbelt, and the Southeast region an opportunity to enjoy blueberries just like their northern neighbors. Southern Highbush are specifically hybridized for superior fruit, soil adaptability, heat tolerance and low winter chilling. Southern Highbush blueberry bushes offer gardeners unique foliage, bloom and plant characteristics that aren’t found in the Northern Highbush. Some Southern Highbush are self-pollinizing, but the berries will be larger if two varieties are planted together. These varieties have low winter chilling requirements. “Chilling” is a measure of accumulated hours of temperatures below 45°F in the dormant season.  Blueberry plants make an excellent addition to edible landscapes. These have dark blue green foliage and attractive pink or white blooms.
