When your plant matures, it will be approximately 4 - 6' tall x 4 - 5' wide.

Recommended Spacing

We recommend spacing these plants 4 - 6' apart to ensure room for growth.

I have tried this berry, and absolutely love it. It's great for making preserves and adding it to frozen lemonade. One of my favorites.

wanted a late blueberry
CHARLES M on Mar 29, 2017
We are planting these on our family property where we have blueberry bushes but they are getting old and need severe pruning. We want new bushes coming along before we do that pruning. All siblings and their children enjoy these blueberry and our parents also.
Rita P on Mar 26, 2017
We currently have 22 blueberry bushes and have blueberries to eat every day of the year. They are very good for you! Our Elliott bush gives beautiful berries, not too small (read: very pickable!), very good flavor, and it is the latest bearer that we have so we are looking to extend our season with a few more.
Holly R on Mar 23, 2017
We lost a 4 legged friend who's name is Elliott.

Live in central Montana. When is a good time to plant blueberry plants. Planning now so the roots can survive the winter?
Edward D on Aug 14, 2020
BEST ANSWER: We appreciate you reaching out to us. Because weather and soil conditions vary so much from year to year and even within your zone, it's best to think of your planting time as a range of favorable conditions instead of an exact time.

You can plant new plants and trees:
1) when the ground is not frozen.
2) when daytime temperatures are above freezing (32??F) and below 90??F.
3) when extreme weather (blizzard, hail, torrential rain, etc.) is not in the forecast. Be sure to keep plants watered if you're transplanting in warm and/or dry weather.

If you have any further questions please don't hesitate to reach back out to us. Have a great day!

Elliott Blueberry
I live in central VA and I thought my soil was plenty acidic. After losing several blueberries, I had my soil tested and it was 8.0. Test your soil first and treat appropriately. My blueberries are alive, but not yet thriving.

Elliot bluberry
I planted my Elliot blueberry about six years ago and it never did much good. After asking around i got some advice from family members. my cousin said to mulch with pine needles. They work better than commercial acidifiers. He also said to water them the equivelent of one inch of rain each week whether it rains or not. Probably depends on how much it rains. We had hardly any rain this summer in southern Iowa but I watered with a soaker hose every week. I had about six cups of berries from my plant which is six cups more than I have had before. They were delicious! Will mulch them again this fall and I'm still watering.

2nd and 3rd year going strong
3 years ago I ordered several Elliot Blueberry plants and the next year ordered several more. I have a nice hedge of them in front of my house lining the sidewalk. They are still small but the three year plants have produced berries already. I have not lost a single one and I'm very pleased with this variety.

Elliott Blueberry perished
Our Elliot Blueberry did not survive its first year. We blame the weather, as with the Heritage Collection. Elliott blueberries have done well at the Dixon Springs Experiment Station just about thirty miles away, so should be well-adapted here.

Elliot blueberry is growing in 6A
I planted 3 Elliott and 3 Chandler blueberry bushes. All Chandler bushes died while Elliott survived. They are very small but growing. I’ve used acidifier and blueberry food. I also collected bunch of pine needles for mulch. I got store credit for Chandler blueberry but may go with a different type of blueberry to help with cross pollination.

Still living
Now entering their second season, these blueberries are still growing but are still smaller than the nearby dwarf variety. Soil and conditions are very much the same so all I can do is to wait to see how they do this year. On the positive side, they're still alive and they have a large number of blossoms.

Cute little bush.
Planted this bush last year in July. This year we already have some berries on it. It is July 29 as I write this review and the berries are not ripe yet. I thing they are to ripen late for a blueberry, so I'm looking forward to that soon. Other varieties that I grow are Earlyblue and Chandler. They ripen in late June and mid July. So the Elliot variety will give me August fruit.
