The evergreen huckleberry offers both great fruit and great beauty for a partially shady to shady place in the landscape. It grows slowly at first, eventually reaching 12' with a dense, upright structure and green glossy leaves. In spring small white flowers appear, later turning red, and maturing to delicious, almost black huckleberries. Native to the Northwest, this is an excellent plant to naturalize in cool, moist, well draining areas. Withstands summer drought once established.

We grow our own selected representative of this evergreen native of Western North America and propagate it vegetatively to maintain its superior spring foliage color and compact habit. New growth is bronze-red. The flowers, which are abundant in mid- to late spring, are white. They are followed by a smattering of small, but very tasty, purplish-black fruits. Florists use the branches as decorative greens. Will grow in protected areas of zone 6. Upright, spreading habit.

In addition to its usefulness for edible berries ; cut evergreens, this is an excellent garden shrub, "beautiful at all seasons" (Haskin), with a compact habit, small glossy dark-green leaves (bronzy when young) ; pink flowers. Sun-PSh/Med
