Answer #1 · Maple Tree's Answer · Hi Della-The Misty blueberry, a Southern Highbush variety, is self-pollinating, but many have found that self-pollinators crossed with other Southern Highbush varieties can produce a larger crop. Other Southern Highbush varieties you can use as pollinators for your Misty blueberry are Sunshine, O'neal, Biloxi, Star, and Sharpblue.

I noted a few links to sites that may help you with ordering the plant you would like.



Hopefully this has helped.

Answer #2 · DELLA HORSTMAN's Answer · Thank you for your quick reply.
Self pollinating?
So I don't really need another variety to get blueberries even though the tags on the plants state that I do?)

Della-You're very welcome. After checking to make sure, I found most all of the low chill southern high bush blueberry varieties self pollinating. The Misty is one of the favorites here in Southern Calif. and other locations where winters are mild. Although Misty is self fruiting many feel they get a larger berry and a somewhat larger crop when planted with another southern high bush variety. Southmoon, Oneal, Sharpblue, Biloxi, Star, and Sunshine are a few that can be planted with the Misty as pollinators. If you don't really have the room or you may only want to plant in a pot on a patio you could wait and see how your Misty variety produces this year. You can always plant another down the road.

Even self-pollinating plants will produce more fruit if another variety is planted nearby. I would always recommend planting at least two varieties of blueberry.
