Grown for both home and commercial use, the Rubel blueberry makes a versatile landscape shrub. Of course it produces the tart, antioxidant-rich berries that we love in muffins and pies. But it also provides year-round interest — white blossoms in the spring, red foliage in the fall, and red twigs in the winter.
Blueberry plants are self-fertile, but cross-pollination produces a better crop — creating larger yields of larger berries. So it is best to plant more than one variety with the same bloom time 4'–6' apart.
