Vaccinium corymbosum is a medium-sized, dense, rounded, deciduous shrub with small, narrowly ovate, blue-green leaves and yellow, coppery red, and purple in autumn. Sprays of urn-shaped, creamy-white flowers bloom in late spring and early summer and are followed by clusters of round, sweet, dark blue to purple blueberries in autumn. Attractive to birds, butterflies, and bees. Vaccinium corymbosum, or Bluberry, grows best in fertile, organically rich, slightly acidic, moisture-retentive, well-drained soils. It thrives in full sun, but tolerates partial shade. It needs to be sheltered form harsh winds. It is self-fertile, but cross-pollination produces the best fruit crop. It doesn’t have any serious pest or disease problems. Low maintenance plant, but it can benefit from some pruning in winter. Blueberries, with its lovely flowers, excellent autumn foliage, and attractive berries, is a great ornamental shrub, but is mostly grown for its fruit production. Perfect for shrub borders or hedges and screens in informal, cottage, and wildlife gardens.

Arundel Arboretum is a shrub and tree retail nursery with over 40 years of experience.

About Us

During this time, we have developed a large stock of trees, mature evergreen shrubs, conifers, Japanese maples, cedars and olives. What sets us apart from a generic garden center is solid unwavering focus on trees and some bigger shrubs. You will find thousands of trees, hundreds of varieties and lots of experts who are working on the nursery and more than willing to help you to choose a plant for you.

What you will not find is hot tubs, garden furniture and plastic garden gnomes. In a nutshell, trees is what we know and trees is what we do, and only trees (and some shrubs to go with the trees).
