Misty blueberries are delicious, sweet berries with a firm texture. They are medium to large in size. These superfruit berries contain fiber, potassium, vitamin C, and vitamin B. They are also rich in antioxidants, flavonoids, and polyphenolic compounds. Eating blueberries can help reduce blood pressure, support brain, and cardiovascular health, and reduce inflammation that can lead to chronic disease.

This blueberry bush is a southern highbush variety that is ideal for growing in the southern United States because of its low chill hour requirements and heat tolerance. While this fruit plant is fast-growing it does not grow too large, staying around 5 to 6 feet tall and wide. The habit of this blueberry bush is upright and spreading. It makes a nice landscape shrub, because of its attractive shape and blue-green foliage.

Misty Blueberry FAQ

When to prune Misty Blueberry plants?

The best time to prune blueberry plants is in late winter. 

Caring for Misty Blueberry

Planting

Spring and fall are the best seasons for planting blueberry bushes. Cooler climates can plant in summer, and warmer climates are fine to plant in winter.

Blueberry bushes will produce the most fruit when planted in full sun and moist, well-drained, acidic soil. Alkaline soil should be amended with compost or elemental sulfur. Using fertilizers specific for acid-loving plants will help too.

Watering

Water thoroughly when planting and about 2 to 3 times weekly for about 1 month after planting. For the next 2 months while your blueberry plant is establishing continue to water deeply once or twice per week. During the growing season, a blueberry plant will do best if the soil is kept moist.

Fertilizing

Apply Very Berry Fertilizer every 6 to 8 weeks during the growing season. Blueberry bushes grown in pots should be fertilized every 6 weeks.

Maintenance

Mulching with pine straw or pine bark helps increase soil acidity and keeps the soil moist longer. Apply 1 to 2 inches of mulch in a mound around your plant.

Prune your Misty Blueberry bush in late winter if needed to open up the canopy or remove dead or dying canes.
