Huckleberry

Description
Native Shrub with Edible Berries
One of the most useful, ornamental shrubs we've found! This native shrub grows 4 ft. tall with a similar spread. In April, white to blush flowers bloom and attract hummingbirds, bees and butterflies. New growth foliage emerges red in the springtime and turns glossy, dark green. In zones 6 and south, the foliage is evergreen. The deep purple-blue berries are good for fresh eating, sauces and preserves. If left on the plant, the birds will happily eat them. The huckleberry is ideal for a specimen planting, a hedge or grouped in the landscape. Plant in full sun to partial shade. Self-pollinating. Bareroot. Zones 5-8.
