Top Hat Blueberry is a cross between Vaccinium Corybosum (highbush) and Vaccinium Angustifolium (wild lowbush) varieties. This shrub produces numerous white blossoms in the spring that become attractive, pea-size and larger light blueberries in early summer.

The dwarf size of this deciduous plant makes it perfect for container gardens. It can also be used in a mixed shrub or perennial border or to create a low hedge along walkways and patios. Vaccinium angustifolium 'Top Hat' only reaches between 1 and 2 feet in height and width. Vaccinium angustifolium 'Top Hat is self-pollinating, but you’ll have a larger harvest if you plant more than one to ensure maximum pollination.

Top Hat Blueberry Care

Grow Top Hat Blueberry in full sun to partial shade conditions in USDA plant hardiness zones 3 to 7. Like most blueberry plants, this shrub prefers to be grown in acidic soils. Bees and butterflies will be attracted to the flowers and birds will be attracted to the delicious fruit. You’ll probably have to cover the ripening berries with netting to prevent the birds from devouring them before you do. Blueberries have shallow roots, so water during unusually dry periods. Fertilize with a balanced fertilizer in early spring if desired.

Top Hat Blueberry Spacing

Space individual plants 2 or 3 feet apart. Top Hat Blueberry is noted for having good resistance to phytophthora root rot.

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. Hungry animals, drought, poor soil conditions, over watering, diseases & pests are all good examples of what can cause plants to die. The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

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). We may ask for photos for documentation purposes, but we try to make the process as easy as possible.

Guarantee and Warranty

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.
