Vaccinium ovatum

The best fruiting plant for your shade garden! A native of Pacific Northwest lowland forests, this evergreen bush is beautiful throughout the year. In the spring and the fall the young foliage turns from green to a striking bronze color. The late summer-ripening berries are a dark blue; tart and flavorful, half the size of a blueberry. The shrub grows best in the shade where it can reach 6-8 feet without pruning. In the sun it only grows to 3 feet tall. It has a dense growth habit and spaced about 3 feet apart makes a beautiful evergreen hedge.

Ask a Question
  • Will these grow on the East Coast?

    In zones 7 and higher they grow fine in full shade, not in full sun.

  • I am Looking for Bilberries ---are these considered Bilberries ?

    No. Bilberries are a Vaccinium species plant native to the British Isles and Europe. With fruit larger than a huckleberry, low growing, and very tart they are closely related to both blueberries and huckleberries, but evolved on a different continent.

  • Cam they grow in full sun in northern nevada

    Technically yes, if watered well, but they will grow more slowly and fruit less than if they are in full shade.

  • How large is the plant when shipped? And how long will it take to bear fruit?

    8"-12" tall in a pot when shipped. They can bear early on, but your mileage may vary. For best results plant in full shade.
