Patriot' is great for northern climates and is disease resistant. It produces delicious berries for pies, jams, preserves, muffins, and desserts. It is lovely used as an ornamental bush and is well-loved by wildlife. The flowers provide nectar for bees, butterflies, and other pollinators, while birds and other wildlife eat the fruit. Blueberry ‘Patriot’ is a dormant plant selected by DeGroot, allowing you to get a head start to the season! Due to its dormant state, this plant may lack foliage until it is planted. There is no need to wait until after frost; this may be planted as soon as the ground is workable. This early planting prevents transplant shock and allows more time to develop its root system. If your plant does have foliage, protect it from frost. Depending on the climate and weather experienced after planting, this plant could take up to 4-6 weeks to break dormancy and show signs of growth.
1. Dig a hole large enough to encompass the roots without bending or circling. 2. Set the plant in place so the crown (part of the plant where the root meets the stem) is 1–2" below the soil surface. 3. Add generous amounts of peat but no fertilizer when planting. Cover with soil to the original soil surface and water thoroughly.
