Ripening in the mid-season, Lowbush Burgundy Blueberry (Vaccinium angustifolium 'Burgundy') is an outstanding cultivar of the beloved Wild Blueberry.
In early spring, incredibly glossy new leaves emerge a bold burgundy-red. They'll cover the well-branched plant, and mature into a very sophisticated gray-green for the summer season.
Watch for the pale gleam of small, bell-shaped flowers later in spring. These develop into your berries, so their appearance is a great reason to celebrate!
The berries are set to the outside of the bush. This makes harvesting your annual crop of light blue berries a snap!
Include these excellent plants in your landscape design. You'll want plenty of their great-tasting berries on hand.
Burgundy is an excellent choice for that flavorful, sweet Wild Blueberry taste. Pop the small,firm berries in your mouth fresh from the bush. They'll even keep well in the fridge, if you have self-restraint.
There is nothing better than a Lowbush Wild Blueberry for use in pancakes and muffins. The incredible flavor shouldn't be missed.
Even the fall display is world-class. Imagine a fiery, red-orange edge along the length of your planting beds.
It's easy to grow these compact, dense plants in acidic soils with a pH between 4.5 to 5.5. Use them in patio containers if you live in an area with alkaline soil.
Self-pollinating Blueberries produce larger harvests with partner plants. Mix Brunswick Blueberries into your planting.

#ProPlantTips for Care
Plant Burgundy Blueberry in either full sun or partial shade. Ensure they receive at least four hours of sunlight a day.
Test your soil often to ensure it is both well-drained and an acidic pH between 4.5 and 5.5. Start early to amend your soil with peat moss and sulphur at the root zone. It may take a while to reduce pH.
If you have soil that retains water for a long time, or have soil pH above 7, you'll want to control the environment. Grow your Blueberry plants in containers.
Select a wide pot, and drill plenty of drainage holes. Elevate the pot on bricks or clay feet, so the water drains away.
Use a potting mix for acid-loving plants. Add handfuls of peat moss or pathway park to 25 percent of the medium.
In-ground plants need careful watering the first year, and each year during fruit development. Apply a medium amount of water on a regular basis.
Containerized plants need supplemental water over the life-span. Collect neutral pH rainwater to use on your Blues.
Apply pine bark or pine straw mulch to keep the root system cool and moist.
Every few years in early spring, remove the woodiest stems before the new leaves emerge. Leave the productive young stems in place.
At the same time, fertilize with a formula designed for the needs of acid-loving plants. Follow the instructions on the label.
