Vaccinium is a genus of about 450 species. Some species and hybrids, including blueberries, cranberries and huckleberries are grown primarily for their fruit. 'Northblue' is a dwarf, hybrid blueberry selection resulting from a cross between Vaccinium corymbosum and V. angustifolium. Mature plants will reach up to 3' tall with an equal spread and an upright to spreading, compact, densely branched habit. The small, white, pendulous, urn-shaped flowers have a pink blush and are followed by sweet and tart, juicy, dark blue berries. This cultivar is self-fertile but may produce larger yields with another individual nearby.
