Lovely and ornamental Misty Blueberry (Vaccinium x 'Misty') is a fruit-bearing shrub with exceptional qualities! It has an upright, spreading nature, plus is fast-growing high yielding, hardy and even tolerates light frost!
Misty bursts onto the spring scene with a profusion of petite, bright pink and white flowers. By June, those dainty blooms transform into glaucous blue berries that are medium to large-sized, and oh so tasty!
Each delightful morsel features a firm-textured, sweet flavor with spicy undertones. Misty is high-yielding, so you're sure to have more than enough berries to enjoy right off the bush and leftovers for a variety of culinary delights!
Attractive, vigorous and high-yielding, your wildlife also appreciate this shrub! Butterflies and pollinators adore the blossoms, while the few berries that fall to the ground or are left on the bush, are perfect for local songbirds and wildlife to enjoy!
Misty Blueberry is an elegant shrub with bright blue-green foliage in summer and burgundy-tinted leaves in autumn! The blooms and lovely blue jewels are an added bonus!
Plant a few in your sunny backyard, a personal orchard, or even just one in a side yard where Misty's delicious harvest draws you in closer. The foliage provides a perfect backdrop to Perennial beds and Cottage Borders!
Misty’s ornamental appearance is lovely throughout the garden in both front and back yard garden design.
Misty reaches 5-6 feet in height and width without pruning. Beautiful foliage, blooms and ornamental blue gems that Misty features mean these shrubs are fantastic hedges and in mixed-shrub borders.
Why shouldn’t your landscaping also feed you? Plant a row along a sunny foundation for curb appeal that also goes onto your breakfast cereal or smoothie? Use these delicious berries for pies and preserves, fresh eating and a wide variety of other dessert recipes!
Misy’s growth is vigorous and generally provides fruit within 2-3 years. Heat tolerant in USDA growing zones 5 - 10 and only requiring 300 chill hours. It's considered self-pollinating but will produce better with other varieties nearby. Try paring your shrub with the Southmoon Blueberry!
Fruiting shrubs need full sun for the best blooms and fruit. Plant in a well-enriched site with well-drained soil.
Blueberry plants are grown in average to moist soil to do their best, preferring acidic soil. Water during times of need and apply a thick layer of mulch over the root system’s surface, to hold in moisture and insulates the roots.
