Box Huckleberry For Sale

Low-growing, spreading shrub offers so much to treasure. A native shrub that is also called the Box Huckleberry, it produces white to pink, bell-shaped flowers that attract butterflies and other beneficial insects in the spring. Edible, deep blue berries follow the flowers. Berried Treasure’s glossy, dark blue-green foliage looks attractive throughout the growing season-and is even evergreen in some grow zones. In the fall, the foliage turns crimson red. Its low-growing, spreading habit and multiple seasons of interest make it an ideal choice for ground cover or planting along walkways. It grows best in acidic, humus-enriched soil. Quart pot. Gaylussacia brachycera ‘Berried Treasure
