It can also be used to create a privacy screen during the growing season. Tifblue is one of the larger varieties of blueberries available. It can quickly grow up to 15 feet in height and 10 feet wide in an upright form at maturity. Prune to keep the size in check if desired. This blueberry variety was released in 1955 by the University of Georgia and the United States Department of Agriculture-ARS.

Tifblue Blueberry Care

Trim older canes if the plant becomes too dense for adequate airflow and berry production space. Blueberries shrubs are generally pest and disease-free. The biggest pest threat will be from hungry birds. Cover your blueberries shrubs with netting to protect your harvest. Tifblue Blueberry is self-fruitful, but you’ll have a better chance for cross-pollination to occur resulting in a more productive harvest when multiple varieties of blueberries are planted close to each other. Plant Tifblue Blueberry in USDA plant hardiness zones 6 to 9 in full sun to partial shade conditions. It’s one of the most cold-tolerant rabbiteye varieties available.

Tifblue Blueberry Spacing

Space plants 5 to 6 feet apart to create a hedge and 8 to 10 feet apart to leave room to maneuver around the plant when harvesting or pruning.

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.

Summer

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!

Winter

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.
