Vaccinium angustifolium

Blueberry, Lowbush

A very attractive small shrub for difficult areas as the foliage turns a brilliant scarlet in the fall with red twigs all winter. The white flowers in spring are followed by the dark blue to black fruit. Commonly known as the Lowbush Blueberry, is a species of deciduous blueberry native to eastern and central Canada and the northeastern United States, growing as far south as West Virginia and west to the Great Lakes region, Minnesota and Manitoba. This wonderful Native American is also grown commercially in Canada, Maine, and Massachusetts, mainly harvested from managed wild patches. It is also a favorite of recreational berry pickers, black bears, rodents and birds. The Lowbush Blueberry is the state fruit of Maine. Interestingly, this plant is fire-tolerant and its numbers often increase in an area following a forest fire. Traditionally, blueberry growers burn their fields every few years to get rid of shrubs and fertilize the soil.
