Misty Early Season Blueberry
Vaccinium corymbosum 'Misty' (Southern Highbush)
|Description||Masses of small pink flower clusters appear in late spring and give way to sky-blue, medium, very sweet fruit in summer. A good variety for warmer southern regions. An upright, spreading habit with attractive blue-green foliage that remains evergreen in mild winters or turns brilliant red before falling in cold climates. Recommended chill: 300 hours.|
|Watering||Keep soil moist, but not soggy.|
|Mature Size||Moderate growing; reaches 4 to 6 ft. tall and wide.|
|Care||Provide rich, acidic, well-drained soil. Water deeply, regularly in first growing season to establish an root system. In extremely hot, arid summer areas, best with some shelter from harsh, reflected afternoon sun. Before new growth begins, prune off twiggy growth, leaving only main stems to prevent overbearing.|
