Description: This common deciduous shrub grows 4-10 feet tall, with dense, strongly- angled, bright-green branches. Leaves are alternate, small (usually less than one inch across), and oval, mostly with smooth edges. Flowers are small, white, and bell-shaped. Fruits are small (about ¼ inch in diameter), pinkish-red to bright-red, round, and fleshy. In winter look for small, alternate red buds pressed against bright green twigs and branches.

Habitat: In coniferous forests, in dry to slightly moist, humusy soil, or on rotting stumps and logs. Prefers loamy, acid soils or rotting wood. Partial to full shade (prefers full shade).Makes a great house plant!

Advantages/Disadvantages: The persistent fruits and attractive branching habit and color make this an excellent landscape plant. A good choice for upland, wooded areas, due to its tolerance of dry, shady conditions. Leaves and twigs are browsed by deer and elk. Berries are eaten by birds & bee's, chipmunks, black bear, and humans to eat!

Propagation: Best grown from seed!
Don't wait! The sooner your Red huckleberry are planted, the sooner you'll be enjoying a plentiful supply of sun-ripened berry whenever you walk into your backyard!
