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.

Blueberry plants grow throughout the United States and Canada. There are many different varieties, and many are suited for multiple regions and climates. Low-growing varieties withstand winter temperatures. High bush varieties reach up to 8-feet and produce berries during the hot summer months. Regardless of weather and growth habit, blueberry plants prefer slightly acidic, fertile soils.
When not producing berries, blueberry plants add to a garden's color. The plant's beautiful flowers and magnificent foliage begin to show in early to late spring. They attract birds and butterflies. Fruit sets soon after blooming ends.
During the flowering season, blueberry plants produce numerous blossoms. Some varieties feature delicate white blooms while others display small, blue flowers that complement the plant's glossy leaves. The deep green foliage adds cooling elements to a garden, especially on hot, sunny days. Blueberry plants are striking when planted as specimens, but they also act as border plants. When cared for properly, blueberry plants offer lush greenery year after year.

Blueberry plants display surprisingly gorgeous fall foliage. After fruiting and harvest, the foliage turns pink, blue, yellow-green and purple. During the winter months, well-formed blueberry plants provide winter interest and attract winter birds.
Blueberry plants are relatively low-maintenance and highly versatile. Blueberry plants thrive on trellises and are shaped to reflect a range of landscape styles. Additionally, blueberry plants thrive in containers placed on sunny patios, decks, and balconies. Provide blueberry plants with mulch and fertilizer over the winter and stake them for support.
Depending on the variety, a blueberry plant yields tart berries, sweet berries or all flavors in between. The best blueberry plant for your edible garden or landscape is the right flavor for your tastes and the right species for your climate.
