The Brunswick Blueberry is a variety that has small, sky blue berries that are firm and flavorful. It is a lowbush variety that makes a 1 - 2 feet dense ground cover if planted in groups. The beautiful densely foliaged plant turns brilliant red or orange in the fall. The flavor is similar to wild blueberries. Brunswick Blueberry was originally from Nova Scotia and grows vigorously in zones 3 - 6. It likes an organically rich, medium to wet, well-drained soil in full sun to part shade.

Wild Lowbush blueberries are a native fruit crop to Atlantic Canada, Quebec and the state of Maine. They are short in stature and unlike their Highbush cousins, may spread with underground stems. A mature planting can form a dense ground cover. Profuse white blooms yield small sized light blue fruit with the distinctive “wild” blueberry flavor. Annual pruning is not necessary but they respond well if two-thirds of the growth is sheared back every second or third year in late winter.
