Bountiful Blue Blueberry is a dwarf deciduous fruiting shrub with compact mounding habit suitable for containers and a heavy production of large, sweet blueberries that ripen early season.  The elliptical green foliage turns a kaleidoscope of bright yellow, orange, red, and then purple in fall. The white flower clusters bloom in early spring.  Grows best with full sun and rich, moist acidic well-drained soils.  Bountiful Blue is self fruiting and has a very low chill requirement of only 150-200 chill hours.

Vaccinium corymbosum are highly valuable for wildlife as well, being listed as a host plant for 32 different butterflies and moths, and provides nectar to several specialized bees.  The berries and branches are good food sources for birds and mammals.
