Always bought highbush (from a NY county nursery). This is my first low bush, first southern grown Blueberry.
Root system is certainly less robust (smaller) than (all) other bear-root BB bushes I've bought.
These bushes seemed fine and only time will tell how well they grow and produce.

Low bush blueberry can also be commonly called a groundcover because of its low growing ability. It prefers to have a trellis or line that it can grow on; it is not necessary, but it is beneficial because it can help a homeowner not have to stoop so low to pick the berries. When growing it is best to plant them around two feet apart to allow for adequate room to grow and spread. They are quick growers and can grow quickly. The more sun, the better the crop yield will become. These are extraordinary smaller plants and can grow to become one to two feet tall. They are amazing and can grow in almost all locations where they are planted. They look great in natural areas as they do not grow to become too large. They make beautiful ornamental shrubs for all gardens and the natural regions.
