Vaccinium angustifolium

We’re growing new ideas! Come back again in April 2018!

Product Description

A slow growing shrub that is very adaptable to soil moisture and light requirements. Produces tiny white and pink bell-shaped flowers in the spring followed by wild blueberries. All parts of this plant are edible; the berries are small but very tasty and can be eaten raw or cooked. We suggest having more than one to produce a higher number of berries. Salt tolerant. Produces brilliant red fall foliage. Requires soil that is acidic; adding peat moss or White Pine needles at the base of the shrub will help lower soil pH. Plant alongside other non-competitive plant species.
