Scrub Blueberry also known as Little Blueberry, Vaccinium darrowii, is a low 24 to 30 inch tall, colony-forming evergreen shrub. It bears very attractive small, blue-green leaves with pink new growth and pink to white, urn-shaped flowers in short, axillary racemes during the spring. The small berries are deep blue and are truly delicious. The berries ripen in late spring and early summer. The flowers attract butterflies and other pollinators and fruit attracts birds. Plant in moist, acidic, well drained soils in full sun. Scrub Blueberries make good container plants and are in some cases, easier to grow in pots in order to meet their ph and moisture requirements. Care needs to be taken to keep blueberries moist and the soil acidified. This is a beautiful and productive small plant that deserves wider ornamental use.
