Patriot Blueberry

A Treat for your Taste Buds and Landscape
A well-placed, strong-performing blueberry plant gives you two functions for the price of one. Patriot is a fine example of this. You'll have reliable, big harvests7mdash;up to 20 lbs when it matures. It's always fun to pick your own ripe, fresh berries and let your friends wonder what your secret ingredient is in divine blueberry pies. Patriot is also a strong-performing bush for landscape design. It's adaptable to many soil types—it's more tolerant of wet soil than most blueberries and resistant to root rot. You'll enjoy white spring blooms and red fall foliage. It'd be a good choice even if it didn't produce fruit, but with those delectable berries, you've really got the best of both worlds. For the best production, plant with Jersey Blueberry.
