It is a deciduous perennial shrub that grows from 9 to 20 inches in height in the warm months and lies dormant in the cold months. It grows to full height in a year. The shrub’s stems are covered with greenish brown to red bark. Its 2-6 inch oval leaves are green to yellow to bluish with a waxy undercoating and may even appear hairy. In the fall, the leaves all turn red. It bears tubular or urn-shaped flowers that are pink striped white, green and pinkish. The blueberries are less than ½ inch in diameter containing many small seeds. The fruit has a sweet to bland taste, and each berry is eight calories. Bumblebees pollinate the flowers, and they blossom along roadsides and in fields.
