The Q&A Archives: japanese blueberry & carolina laurel

Question: The japanese blueberry & the carolina cherry laurel seem very similar. Are these plants related? I bought a beautiful shrub that the nursery called a japanese blueberry and would like to purchase some more. How can I be sure I'm ordering the right plant? Thanks for any advice you can provide.
