This addition to our series offers a wealth of information and advice on growing blueberries, cranberries, lingonberries, and dozens of lesser-known relatives otherwise known as vacciniums. Jennifer Trehane explores the historical, ornamental, and edible aspects of Vaccinium , a diverse genus of more than 400 species. The culinary importance of these berry-bearing plants is well known, but too few people are aware of their ornamental potential. Many of the plants described in these pages have brightly colored young growth, flowers that are sometimes scented, and either evergreen or deciduous leaves with brilliant fall color. Some vacciniums become large, bold shrubs, while others remain small and compact, making them ideal for containers and small gardens. The author lists dozens of little-known species deserving more attention, and all who read this book will find a range of plants suitable for each garden habitat.
