Huckleberry

Description
Among our team, a favorite childhood memory is the hunt for huckleberries in the woodlands. Many of us fondly remember sweet and juicy nearly-black berries that would rarely make it home for pancakes, part because the birds and wildlife usually beat us to them, and part because we gobbled whatever they left for us. At the time, we didn't realize what a beautifully ornamental woodland ground cover they made. Now we know better and plant these among other shade plants for the vivid foliage color as well as bird-attracting fruit. A native to the Pacific Northwest as well as eastern coastal states, the huckleberry's small, leathery leaves are tinged with copper and bronze hues before maturing to shiny dark green. Small, white flowers open in the spring and succulent, blue-black berries ripen in late summer and make delicious jam. Plant in informal groups or shear to create a dense, formal hedge.
