High Chill


Northsky is a half-high blueberry with wild lowbush ancestry. It is the most cold-hardy of all blueberries and can survive extreme winter conditions. Even in warmer areas, Northsky has been quite popular as a wonderful addition to the landscape, being particularly well-suited for container growing, borders or group plantings. The bush grows 2' – 3' wide and begins spring completely covered in snow white blooms. The foliage is dense, with small glossy green leaves in summer.

Duke is still the early variety of choice for the north...the plant is extremely adaptable in many climates and geographies. It's very winter hardy in the far north, and very resistant to the hot summer in the southern parts of Europe.
