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.

Norman,

Those two species are not closely related and are different enough to prevent confusing their identities. The following website has a photo of Japanese blueberry:
