Tree & Shrub List V

Vaccinium

– Blueberry, Cranberry. White bell-shaped flowers in spring followed by edible berries and scarlet autumn color. Blueberries make easy care landscape shrubs, often overlooked. Even if you don’t want the berries, it still is a multi-season landscape plant, and the birds will thank you! Sun to part shade. They do like a very organic rich soil, and it must be kept acidic for best growth. Highest berry counts when 2 varieties of the same season are planted together. NATIVE.
