Bless Your Heart Blueberry is an open upright deciduous shrub that produces richly flavored medium-sized to large blueberries.  The elliptical blue-green foliage turns shades of red in the fall.  The white flower clusters bloom later than other varieties in mid-spring.  Grows best with full sun and rich, moist acidic well-drained soils.  While self fruiting, it should be planted with others to cross-pollinate and increase yield.  The DownHome Harvest series has improved heat, disease, and pest resistance.
