Description

  • Latin Name: Vaccinium corymbosum sp.
  • Zones: 5-10
  • Chill Hours: 300
  • Plant Age: 2 Years
  • Harvest: Early-season
  • Bush Habit: Upright, spreading bush reaching 4-6' tall with blue green and burgundy foliage in fall.
  • Fruit: Medium large, sweet, spicy flavored berries.
  • Facts of note: Misty is one of the most attractive, vigorous and high yielding Southern Highbush varieties. The bright blue-green foliage provides a perfect contrast to the pink and white spring flowers and sky blue summer fruit. Yields best when planted with other varieties. Chilling needs are very low at 300 hours, but don't hesitate to plant it all the way to Seattle. One of the most popular varieties in California because of fast growth, high yields, consistent quality.

Delicious, exceptionally nutritious, high in bioflavanoids. Consider climate suitability, ripening season and fruit size when selecting varieties and include at least two different varieties for cross-pollination and fruiting (any two varieties will do, regardless of ripening time). Grow in acidic, well-drained soil. Cottonseed meal is an excellent fertilizer for blueberries along with good quality compost and peat moss.

Check out our Fruit Harvest Chart to plan for successive harvests.

Guarantee

Limited Guarantee for Dormant Trees & Plants (When Planted in the Ground by April 1st)

Claim Deadline is June 1st (with the exception of persimmon trees, which have a deadline of June 15th)! Claims placed after June 1st (or June 15th for persimmon trees) will be denied.

What We Guarantee
Our only guarantee is that your dormant tree/plant will arrive in good, viable condition and will leaf out by May 15th (historically 98% of our trees do). This guarantee is only available to customers who purchased their tree/plant directly from us, and who planted their tree/plant in the ground by April 1st (or temporarily in a pot if the ground in their zone was still frozen solid).

What We Cannot Guarantee
We cannot guarantee that your tree/plant remains alive & healthy, or bears fruit, as there are too many variables beyond our control in order to do so (i.e. soil preparation, planting, fertilization, weed & pest control, adequate irrigation and/or drainage, chill hours, compatible hardiness for your zone, proper choice of pollinator, etc).

How to Request a Credit
If your tree/plant does not leaf out by May 15th, please perform a scratch test by checking for green under the bark, a few inches over the graft. If the scratch test reveals a brown cambium, that means your tree/plant is dead or dying. Watch our video titled Bare Root (Dormant) Warranty on how to perform this simple test. If the scratch test revealed that your plant is dead or dying, pull it from the ground and take pictures of the entire tree/plant, including the roots. Submit your claim & pictures by using the Return an Item tool on our Customer Service page (or email us at helpdesk@groworganic.com) no later than June 1st (or June 15th for persimmon trees). We will review your claim and issue you a credit (not a refund) for the purchase price of your tree/plant (excluding shipping).*

(*) We reserve the right to not issue credit for items purchased with credit, or if we determine (by the pictures you provide) that your tree/plant was improperly cared for (due to root rot, rodent or mechanical damage).

Beautiful Plants

Our Misty Blueberry plants arrived quickly and were packaged nicely. When we examined them, they were pristine, very healthy plants. I'm looking forward to watching them grow and produce!

Beautiful

After four weeks at home, they are leafing out on March 23, 2018. (Please see my full review under Blueberry - Sunshine Blue) So anxious for next year...

Another great blueberry variety

I have planted bare root before but these blueberry bare root were a pleasant surprise. The plants arrived in fantastic shape with enough "bare root soil" to give the plants a strong start. It has barely been 3 weeks and they all are producing new leaves and signs of vigorous growth. Very pleased. Customer service was also tops in helping me pick varieties for my area.

Good

This was one of several varieties I purchased and was pleased with the product. It was healthy with two or three developed branches and a well established root system.
