Southern Highbush, Late- Early Season
Misty Blueberry, Vaccinium x 'Misty', is a fruit bearing shrub with exceptional qualities. Plant a few in your sunny back yard for your own personal orchard, or even just one in a side yard where Misty's delicious harvest will draw you in for a closer look.
Your Misty Blueberry bursts onto the spring scene with a profusion of petite, bright-pink/white flowers. By June, those dainty blooms will have transitioned to blue berries that are medium to large in size and oh so tasty!
Each delightful morsel has a firm texture and sweet flavor with spicy undertones. Misty is a high-yielding shrub, so you're sure to have more than enough berries to enjoy right off the bush (with some left-over for a variety of culinary delights). Even your wildlife is sure to appreciate the few berries that fall to the ground, or are left on the bush for their enjoyment.
Even when not in flower or fruit, your Misty Blueberry is an elegant bush with its blue/green foliage in summer and burgundy-tinted leaves in autumn.
It has an upright, spreading nature. Misty is fast-growing, high yielding, hardy and even tolerates light frost. Misty has an ornamental appearance and its growth is vigorous (generally providing fruit within 2-3 years). Misty is heat tolerant, doing well in warm climates (requiring 300 chill hours). It's considered self-pollinating, but will produce better with other varieties nearby.
Blueberries are beloved for their delicious flavor, culinary versatility and health-enhancing attributes...and Misty Blueberry matches that incredible benefit with its beauty and performance. Make Misty Blueberry's beauty and healthy harvest a part of your home today!
For larger crops, plant with a Southmoon pollination partner blueberry.
