Low Bush Blueberry
Vaccinium angustifolium

Up to 2'tall, 2' wide
Full sun

Nearly everyone is familiar with blueberries, but few recognize the highly ornamental and adaptable qualities of the Blueberry Bush. A plant native to the Northeastern U.S., the Blueberry Bush puts on a show in spring with lovely green leaves and attractive, waxy flowers that attract bees.
In July and August, birds relish the sweet and juicy blue fruits, and the glowing red fall color is nothing less than spectacular. Even in winter, the twiggy and twisted branches form a lovely silhouette, especially with a light dusting of snow. It grows moderately up to 2 tall, and 2 wide. It prefers full sun, with moist but well-drained acid soil. Hardy to USDA Zone 2.
