Northern Highbush Blueberry
Species: V. corymbosum
Vaccinium corymbosum, L. 1753
Vaccinium corymbosum is a deciduous shrub growing 2 to 4 m tall and wide. The dark glossy green leaves are elliptical and up to 5 cm long. In autumn, the leaves turn to a brilliant red, orange, yellow, and/or purple. The flowers are long bell-shaped white to very light pink, and about 8 mm long. They need honey bees, bumble bees, or other wild bees to be effectively pollinated for the best fruit set. The fruit is a blue berry, 6 to 12 mm in diameter. Vaccinium corymbosum is found in wooded or open areas with moist acidic soils, from eastern Canada and United States to the southern United States.
