Size & Spacing

Mature Size

When your plant matures, it will be approximately 4 - 5' tall x 3 - 4' wide.

Recommended Spacing

We recommend spacing these plants 3 - 4' apart to ensure room for growth.


This variety is self pollinating.

In many cases, you may still want to plant pollinating partners to increase the size of your crops, but with self-pollinating varieties doing so is optional. You'll get fruit with only one plant!

I like the self pollination and disease protection, but most of all, the fact it will produce 2 batches of blueberries.

I have a nice patch of highbush blueberries that do very well so I am branching out with a few other varieties of early/late harvest berries. This caught my eye in that it gives 2 harvests!

I am planning an edible hedge / foundation planting using the eye catching appeal and habitat value of blueberries. WHAT SIZE is the BUSHEL & BERRY PERPETUA?
-- Ellie Rusling, Rochester GC
Ellie - ROC on Feb 2, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Petpetua will grow to be 4-5' tall and 3-4' wide. Hope that helps with your planning! Be sure you located the bushes in slightly acidic soil (pH of 4.5 to 5.5) or amend the soil before you plant. It is well worth doing ... you will be rewarded with many more blueberries.

Can the Perpetua Bushel and Berry Blueberry bush be grown in a container?
