I chose Misty because it was recommended by Stark Bros for my zone 9. This has been one of my most prolific plants.

I added this because of being a good pollinator for the ONeal.

Takes a licking
Jury is still out, a little...it came in perfect shape no complaints...however I planted it in an unsuitable place (too much shade and where the snow gets very deep and can stay until late April) my fault, so it just hung on. I transplanted it and an O'Neil after an early snow melt in March, before we got more snow, into a sunny corner. It is beginning to bud out It looks much happier as does the O'Neil. So as far as Stark's is concerned Perfect...my choice of first location not so much. The Misty Blueberry is tough.

The bushes arrived in great condition. Planted right away in the fall. The winter was mild in South Texas and the bushes are already blooming. They are healthy and thriving.

I bought this with another type blueberry plant and it has TAKEN OFF! - while the other is much slower. I have It in a pot, but if it keeps growing at this rate i'll have to think about what to do with it. We had some blueberry bushes in the past that were tall and beautiful, productive and sweet and this is moving in that direction - I can't wait until it starts to bear!!! It also has some beautiful foliage / nice to look at. So far exceedingly pleased!

Beautiful bushes
These plants are looking great! They are loaded with good looking blueberries that will soon be ripe and ready to pick. They have been healthy and growing since I planted them in my pots. I definitely would recommend them to others.

Another one that has done well in West Central Florida's zone 9A. I did pinch the flowers in it's first bloom and there are new canes appearing and overall growth has been pretty robust. I have it growing in a #25 nursery pot/

If my husband would leave them alone (as in stop stepping on them, mowing them over) I believe this would be a great plant!

Good Growth and production - with acidic soil
The Misty Blueberry has done well in Durham NC over the last two and half years. The first year saw very little growth but with the addition of organic sulfur as an acidifier made a big difference with the plant now over 3 feet tall and good production.

Misty Blueberry Plants
I have tried growing Blueberry plants in Southern CA. for nine years with no success . I saw the Stark bros web sight and decided to give it one last try. What a great company !
First, the plants arrived in excellent condition. All had healthy green leaves and excellent roots. Second, I followed their planting recommendations regarding the use of mulch, fertilizer, etc. None of the other growers ever mentioned its use.
Finally, none of the other plants lasted a year.my Stark Bros not only made it over a year, I have just started picking my first "homegrown" blueberries.
They taste nothing like store bought berries ! They are sweeter and juicier than any blueberry I have ever tasted.
I'm never shopping anywhere else for my garden needs.
Stark Bros is my first and only supplier for my garden needs.
