It’s hard to go wrong with this selection of our native lowbush blueberry for ease of growth and fruiting. ‘Northern Glory’ is a dense, spreading plant that thrives in sandy, acid soils in the wild. Its compact branching will fill with small, white, fragant, bell shaped flowers in early May followed by masses of small blueberries that ripen to dark blue, sweet tasting perfection by late July and early August. While the fruit on lowbush blueberry types like ‘Northern Glory’ is far smaller than that of highbush types, it’s just as sweet, tasty and profuse making it a little fruting machine for your edible garden. Even better, it’s tolerant of partial shade and poor soil conditions while able to accommodate smaller spaces in your garden than larger highbush varieties will. Plant ‘Northern Glory’ in groups for even more fruting power!
