Vaccinium corymbosum or Highbush Blueberry has multiple upright stems that branch out to form a rounded shrub about 8′ tall at maturity. Dark green opposite leaves and small white bell-shaped flowers in the spring are followed by sweet edible berries, enjoyed by humans and birds, in summer. The foliage then turns a dark red in fall. Requires highly acidic soil containing lots of organic matter to thrive. Most planting sites will have to be amended with a soil acidifier.
