Virginia Creeper
Common Blueberry

Virginia Creeper is a fast-growing, climbing vine. Its root-like tendrils attach themselves to any non-smooth surface, even brick, but will also grow as a ground cover.

Virginia Creeper makes a beautiful ornamental plant for your garden; its attractive foliage turns from green to deep red in the fall. Birds will love its red berries.

Common Blueberry isn't as large, pretty, or high yielding as the other varieties we carry. But Common Blueberry is our only blueberry that will survive in plant hardiness zones 1A to 2B. So if you happen to live in one of these zones, this is the variety for you.

Plus, these August maturing berries are wonderfully flavorful and contain more antioxidants by volume than the highbush varieties. They'll give your baked goods a wonderful pop of flavor.

Note: Blueberries require very specific soil conditions. They need well-drained soil with a pH between 4.5 and 5.0. If the starting pH of your soil is between 5.1 and 6.2 you can lower it by adding sulfur. We recommend against planting blueberries in soil with a starting pH greater than 6.2. Please do your own research before buying any blueberry plants.
