Gaylussacia brachycera 'Berried Treasure'™

Gaylussacia brachycera, more popularly known as 'Berried Treasure', is a relic from the ice age! Its Pennsylvania colony covers over a mile, growing 6" a year - that's an ancient 10,000 year single colony! This species of Huckleberry offers glossy, toothed leaves, blooms of white (sometimes pink) urn-shaped flowers, and long (3/4”) drupe-like blue fruits in summer. It's adaptable to full sun, drought-tolerant, and a haven for pollinators and wildlife. Berried Treasure is a low-growing, spreading shrub with numerous uses - it's a rare, ancient find!
