Vaccinium vitis-idaea 'Scarlet'
Small but mighty; Scarlet is a beautiful ornamental groundcover that grows to only 4-8 inches tall. Scarlet produces reasonable quantities of medium size, tasty red berries on its branch tips and is also a great pollinizer for other cultivars.
Scandinavians love these fantastic edible evergreen ground covers that produce delicious cranberry-like berries great for sauces, jellies and cooking. They are attractive and easy-to-grow in your garden with bright red fruits the size of a small blueberry. These beautiful and productive groundcover plants are under-utilized and a must for American gardeners in cooler regions. They are also great grown in a pot. Hardy to USDA Zones 4.
