They can be used in juices, jams, and jellies. The plant has an upright form and tolerates the heat and humidity of the southeast. It grows 3-15 feet tall and 3-10 feet wide and should be planted in full sun with sandy to loamy soil. It needs a pollinator such as Tifblue or Austin. Climax blueberries require 400-450 chill hours.

How to Plant
STEP 2) Once you've located the perfect spot, the hole you are digging must be at least double the width and as deep as the root system you are planting.
STEP 3) Remove the plant from the pot and place the root ball in the hole. The top of the root system should be level with the ground. Before placing the tree or shrub in the hole, use your hands to gently break up the root system.
STEP 4) Once the plant is in place, backfill the hole with native soil and any leftover potting material.
STEP 5) Pack down the soil to eliminate any air pockets.
STEP 6) When finished, water thoroughly.
The blueberry bushes arrived in great condition. A couple of the bushes had small berries on them. They were packaged with great care. You have excellent workers who are doing a great job!
I was expecting a smaller blueberry bush in halfway decent shape after shipping and what I got was amazing. It was this huge bush in great shape with blueberries already covering it. Not to mention the bush was about as big as I am. I was very amazed and will be ordering again.
I'm very pleased with this order! The bushes were healthy and bigger than I expected. Shipping was fast and the plants were packaged carefully.
Ordered Climax, Powder Blue and Brightwell blueberry plants. Extremely happy with the service and the plants. Will order more.
I have to admit the only reason for the 4 star review and not a 5 is because the Alapaha and Premier that accompanied this Climax were twice the size. The plant appears healthy. The rootball was well protected and in great condition but the branches and leaf out along with the flowers was nowhere near the other two. Perhaps that is comparing apples to oranges and my concern is totally unfounded but time will tell. It’s in the ground and I hope to see good things to come. Plant Me Green does the best packaging of multiple plants I have experienced to date.
