For Heaven's Sake Blueberry is an upright spreading deciduous shrub with a high production of medium-sized, notably firm and sweet blueberries.  The elliptical blue green foliage turns shades of purple-red in fall. The white flower clusters bloom in late spring but the berries ripen early.  Grows best with full sun and rich, moist acidic well-drained soils.  Has moderate chill requirement of 600-650 hours.  While able to self fruit it should be planted with others to cross-pollinate to increase yield. The DownHome Harvest series has improved heat, disease, and pest resistance.  For Heaven's Sake is especially resistant to stem canker.
