When Are Blueberry Plants Frost Damaged?

Some types of blueberry plants can survive temperatures as low as -30 degrees Fahrenheit. As new buds develop in the spring the blueberry plant's cold tolerance lessens so that temperatures of approximately 20 degrees Fahrenheit can cause frost damage. Damaged buds do not open and may appear wilted or brown.
