Blueberry leaf color

Asked February 26, 2018, 1:11 PM EST

The leaf color on this mail-order Blueberry plant did not look right when it arrived. What could be the cause? Could it be cold temperature, lack of sunlight or nutrients, or pests? What should I do to make it healthy again?

New leaves on blueberries are often slightly reddish. You do not need to do anything.
