Blueberries prefer full sun, but will tolerate light shade (they may be less productive in shade but will still produce some fruit).

Water
Moderate

Blueberries require constant moisture for maximum productivity. They are actually quite drought tolerant, though in dry situations they will produce less and grow more slowly.

Feeder
Moderate

Blueberries are adapted to grow on acidic soils that are fairly poor and they don't need a lot of NPK nutrients. However, they will often be more productive if fed occasionally.

Suitability
Tolerates light frost, Needs lots of space

Containers?
No

It is not recommended that you plant this variety in a container. 'Highbush' blueberry can grow to 5 to 6' tall with a 4 to 6' spread. It is possible to grow them in a large pot with a wide diameter, but you would need to provide adequate support as well.
