Also known as the grey-white blueberry for its gorgeous grey-blue foliage dusted white, the Himalayan Huckleberry is the most ornamental Vaccinium we’ve seen. Evergreen, dwarfing, easy to grow and produces tasty little huckleberries in late summer. An excellent addition where you need a little splash of bluish grey to light up the understory and a plant that fits into a variety of soil, sunlight, and design situations.
