Evergreen Huckleberry

(Vaccinium ovatum)

With glossy leaves year-round, bell-shaped flowers in spring, and tasty blueberry-type fruit in fall, this shrub, a western U.S. native, is easy to love. But it grows very slowly for the first couple of years, so it's hardly noticeable. White to pink flowers.

Zone: 3; Hardy to 0 degrees F

Height: up to 3 feet in sun or 12 feet in shade, but can be pruned back.
