Planning for Blueberries all Season Long

Autumn-ripe blueberries

Autumn-ripe blueberries

If you’re feeling ambitious and you’d like to have blueberries all season long, you’ll need to plant several varieties. Just as day lilies have different blooming times, blueberries ripen at different times throughout the season.

This list covers a selection from early bloomers to late producers in zones 5 to 7, which includes much of the continental U.S. Be sure to check with your local garden center to find the plants that will thrive best in your area.

If you read the history of the blueberry section of the Introduction closely, you’ll see some familiar, historical names for some of the plants here.
