Bluebell Rabbiteye Blueberry is a vigorous upright deciduous shrub with an extended harvest season adapted for the southern US states.  Tiny white or pink flowers give way to large light blue berries with excellent flavor that ripen midseason.  The elliptical bright green foliage has nice fall colors. Grows best with full sun and rich, moist acidic well-drained soils.  Bluebell has very low chill requirements and  should be planted with others to cross-pollinate to increase yield.  Takes pruning well to maintain size.
