Description

Vaccinium ashei grows best on acid soil and is subject to few pests and diseases. Because it is not self-fruitful, two compatible varieties should be planted next to each other to maintain growth and fruiting. If maintained with mulching, it may endure temperatures as low as 10 degrees Fahrenheit. The plants mature to heights from 3 to 6 feet, with a width of up to 4 feet. The plant has few insect or disease problems, however birds and squirrels consume its fruit.[
