Tasty Berries on Compact Plant

Get Fruit Your First Year
No waiting 
for these delicious berries.  We've groomed and nurtured the Top Hat Blueberry to perfection, so when you receive yours' - just plant it and watch it deliver bright blueberries quickly. It's self-pollinating, but you'll get a lot more fruit if you couple it with another blueberry bush planted nearby.  We have a large selection that pair perfectly with the Top Hat. 

Flavor Packs a Punch
If you love the flavor of blueberries, you'll be amazed at how much more flavorful these berries taste, compared to store-bought varieties. The small, firm fruit is loaded with extreme flavor, perfect for grabbing by the handful - or including in salads, jams, sauces, and of course - BAKING.  

You'll Have Many Options for Placement
Maturing at only 2 feet tall, there are multiple places to plant yours. They're an impressive addition to your patio, and since they perform best with a "partner" nearby - its size is an asset.  These do well as a container plant, whether placed on a deck or amongst your flower garden. Add color to small spaces - or your landscape - while still enjoying the bounty of delicious fruit.  You can also bonsai the Top Hat!

Surprising Colorful Blooms
The vivid blue berries are the star of this plant, but its foliage and classic white blossoms are close competitors if you're measuring beauty. It's the only blueberry variety that bursts with colors respective to the seasons. Small white flowers emerge in the spring and dance amongst perfect, glossy green foliage.  The contrast of colors between the three is impressive.  As autumn rolls around and you've harvested all of your amazing berries, the Top Hat has one more offering. The foliage turns shades of orange and bright red before dropping for the winter.  This is unusual for most blueberry varieties.  When you want to add color to any setting, this is an excellent choice.

Order Now
We love the Top Hat - and so do our customers. We sell out quickly, so order now.

Dissatisfied
I bought this plant in May and it came very distressed looking and I planted it anyway. Did not grow at all and died. Do not purchase the plants with this company. When I called the customer service the lady was very rude and did not offer any explanation at all.

I've bought from a few different companies and so far the only bushes and trees that have lived are from fast growing with the exception of a goji berry I purchased from stark bros lol. I bought 2 of the top hat BB bushes and planted them late in fall, they are still alive at this point (end of march)

Ehh, have to wait and see
It’s grown somewhat. I used he fertilizer provided, it’s in a planter twice the size of the plant and it’s watered and fertilzed regularly. It only has about 10 small blueberries on one and about 3 on the other. Not real impressed but not dissatisfied either. Hopefully next year it’s better.

Planting & Care



It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Top Hat Blueberry Bush


Top Hat Blueberry Bush Planting Diretions

The Blueberry is a deciduous shrub. The leaves are spirally arranged, narrow, and start out red-bronze in the spring only to develop into a dark-green. The flowers of the Blueberry are white, and bell-shaped. The fruit is a berry, which is dark blue to black, and has a thin wax coating.

Seasonal information: Blueberries are grown as an ornamental plant for its fall colors, typically bright orange or red. It is also a highly regarded "super food", containing beneficial vitamins and nutrients.

Location: When selecting a site to plant your Blueberry bush, make sure the site has full sun and drains well. The plant grows best in moist soil, not in soggy soil. Blueberry plants require acidic, well-draining soil. When planted in soils with a pH higher than 5.5, blueberry plants do not absorb nutrients adequately and become more susceptible to disease. Blueberry plants contract moisture-related diseases when exposed to humid conditions or standing water.

Planting instructions: Dig a hole with the shovel that is about twice the size of the root ball of the bush. Make sure the hole is the same depth as the container it comes in. When planting more than one blueberry bush, dig holes that are at least five feet apart in rows that are 10 feet apart. Amend the soil from the hole with peat moss. Make sure to thoroughly mix the peat moss with the soil from the hole. Place the Blueberry bush in the hole. Cover the roots with soil-peat moss mix.

Watering: Your blueberry bushes will need to be watered regularly to make certain that the root system becomes well established. The soil surrounding your tree should be moist, but never saturated. Light green leaves can be a sign of over watering, while drooping leaves can be a sign of both over or under watering.

Fertilization: You do not need to fertilize the Blueberry bush at the time of planting. Fertilize the Blueberry bush twice a year, once in the spring and once after harvest.

Weed Control: Hand-pull weeds near the blueberry shrubs. You can damage the shallow root system with garden tools.

Pests and Disease: Blueberries grow best in acidic soil and are subject to few pests and diseases. The Blueberries are not self-fertile, so two compatible varieties should be planted next to each other to maintain growth and fruiting. If maintained with mulching, the berries can handle temperatures as low as 10 degrees Fahrenheit. Blueberries can mature to the height of three to six feet with a width of up to three feet. The plant has few insect or disease problems; however, birds and squirrels are prone to eating them.

Pruning: Blueberries require only minimal pruning. Lower limbs can be thinned out to keep the fruit from touching the soil, and excessively vigorous upright shoots can be thinned out several feet from the ground to keep the center of the bush open, and to keep the bearing surface within reach. Spindly, weak, or dead branches should be thinned out annually during the dormant season.

Pollination: Blueberries are not self-fertile and must have two or more varieties to pollinate each other. Honeybees are inefficient pollinators, and carpenter bees frequently cut the corollas to rob nectar without pollinating the flowers. Blueberries do best when pollinated by buzz pollination by bees, such as the native southeastern blueberry bee.

Kislaya K on Jun 23, 2018
If these can be grown in a container, what are the planting instructions for that? What size container is required? watering instructions? etc...
Elizabeth L on Apr 23, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I would start out with a 5 gallon container, with an acidic soil. (Potting mix for Azaleas or Hydrangeas) Putting mulch around the top, pine bark or needles work well. Water every few days, depening on the climate. Place in full sun. Fertilize every few months with an organic fertilizer.
If I buy two Top Hat Blueberry plants, will they pollinate one another? or do I need an entirely different variety for pollination?
Hylton P on Jan 14, 2016
BEST ANSWER: All the information I have found indicates that Top Hat Blueberry Plants are self pollinating. But I have always had more than one variety early, middle and late maturing blueberries which will extend the time for fresh blueberries.
can this be grown in a pot? is just one plant enough?
vrd2017 on Jan 13, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes mine yields lots of berries
