Superb blue-green leaf selection of this exceptionally ornamental evergreen Himalayan Blueberry.  We saw this in western Arunachal Pradesh in 2003 at 10,000' and discovered an eastern range extension of this in Sichuan in 2006.  This is a superior form to both populations and likely has its origins with Barry Starling, UK Ericaceae expert. Fruit is edible but very tart, good only for special preserves and you might be better served eating the birds that came to eat the berries.  Not that we would.  Or do.
