Blueberry - Star (Southern Highbush)Hybrid Vaccinium corymbosum
USDA Hardiness Zones: 7-10
Star differs from other southern highbush cultivars in that it combines a low chill requirement, early fruit ripening, high fruit quality, and a very short harvest period. In contrast to most southern highbush cultivars, Star has a chilling requirement low enough to allow it to be grown as far south as Gainesville, Fla., with no delay in spring budbreak. The fruit of Star are medium to large, averaging about 1.6 grams per berry. Berries are dark blue in color. The small, dry pedicel scar and high firmness give the berries a long post-harvest life. Both flavor and texture are excellent. The medium sized bush has a moderately upright growth habit and have shown moderate resistance to Phytophthora root rot and stem blight. Hardy in Zones 7-10.
USDA ZONES: Zone 7, Zone 8, Zone 9, Zone 10

How to Plant
STEP 2) Once you've located the perfect spot, the hole you are digging must be at least double the width and as deep as the root system you are planting.
STEP 3) Remove the plant from the pot and place the root ball in the hole. The top of the root system should be level with the ground. Before placing the tree or shrub in the hole, use your hands to gently break up the root system.
STEP 4) Once the plant is in place, backfill the hole with native soil and any leftover potting material.
STEP 5) Pack down the soil to eliminate any air pockets.
STEP 6) When finished, water thoroughly.
