An introduction which is a very curious departure from the norm for blueberries as this has pink fruit. Can you still call it a blueberry if it has pink fruit? Yet it still tastes like a blueberry....I haven't had my world turned this upside down since I first ate white chocolate. Tasty fruit on an attractive deciduous plant.
Hamilton Dwarf Cranberry. This is one of our desert island dwarf shrublets. Granted, we would be bundled up on the beach as this would be a cool northern island for this to be happy but that is a small concession for 12 months of beauty. Perfection in a small package with very slow growth, evergreen leaves turning burgundy in winter, tiny pink flowers and red fruit - yea, verily!
Sweet little blueberry from the Himalaya and China evocative of Lingonberry in stature. Often epiphytic, this has glossy green foliage and attractive pink flowers in spring followed by black fruit. Sure, you can eat them but like so many lesser edibles that are marginally palatable, why would you? Spreads gently by stolons - it is a class act.
