Make your landscape as delicious as it is beautiful with the Becki Blue Blueberry. This Rabbiteye variety is known as Vaccinium ashei ‘Becky Blue.’ It is an upright branching plant that is low-maintenance and provides an abundant harvest. White and pink blooms emerge in early spring and give way to fruit ready to be picked mid-spring to early summer. This plant grows as a perennial in USDA zones 6 through 9.

The Becki Blue Blueberry is a large plant that can be 6 to 10 feet tall. This plant is deciduous and will drop its foliage during the winter when it is dormant. As a fruit-bearing shrub, this plant will attract butterflies and birds. In this instance, birds can be a nuisance since they may eat berries, so monitor the crop and pick when the fruit is fully ripe. Plant the Becki Blue Blueberry in a hedge with other varieties.

Becki Blue Blueberry Plant Care

The Becki Blue Blueberry requires full sun. Blueberries need rich soil high in organic matter. The soil should also be acidic and have a pH of 4.5 to 5.2. Water when the top few inches of the soil is dry and place mulch around the base of the plant to retain moisture. Do not feed the plant the first year it is planted, and use a slow-release acidic fertilizer in early spring before buds appear and again during late spring.

Remove lower branches as necessary to keep fruit from touching the ground. Trim away shoots to direct energy into the plant and fruit production. Prune dead growth in the fall when the plant is dormant. Blueberry plants need to be cross-pollinated and require other varieties nearby to produce fruit. Plant the Becki Blue Blueberry near at least 2 different varieties of blueberry at least 6 feet apart to promote cross-pollination.

Becki Blue Blueberry Plant Spacing

The Becki Blue Blueberry can be 6 to 10 feet tall and 10 feet wide. Plant in an area where the shrub will receive plenty of sunlight, but the plant will not block other plants. Space plants 10 to 12 feet apart, so it is easy to move around the plant when picking berries. Create a dense hedge by spacing plants 6 feet apart.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability).

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.


If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!


Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
