These blueberry bushes were planted in late May of this year. The two varieties are Home Bell and Premier although I am not sure which one is which. Why is the one bush growing so bushy and so rapidly when the others are not? Is this normal? Do I need to prune it or cut off the bushy parts?

Are you sure that what you have pictured is a blueberry plant? From what I am seeing it is not. Looks like a weed to me. I have never saw a blueberry plant look like this before.

Me either which is why I'm asking! Those bushy parts are definitely growing off the blueberry plant that we planted!!!

Maybe it is a weed and we just got a bad pot from the garden center. It has small white flowers.

Blueberries do have what could be described as small white flowers, but not ones that look like that. Try the "Plant Identification" forum. This looks like something vaguely daisy-ish to me, but I'm no expert.
