A slow-growing shrub that prefers slightly acidic soil and full sun to part shade. 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 plant to produce a higher number of berries. Salt tolerant. Produces brilliant red fall foliage. Add peat moss or White Pine needles at the base of the shrub to help lower soil pH. Plant alongside other non-competitive plant species.
