An outstanding, long lived native shrub found throughout eastern North America. Plants develop white to pink urn-shaped flowers in May, just as the leaves are unfolding. The flowers are followed by large crops of blueberries which make a great snack if you' re lucky enough to beat the birds! In fall, dark green leaves turn to yellow, bronze, orange and red and often retain their coloration for several weeks. Plants mature 6-12' in height and frequently take on unique architectural forms with age. Our 75+ year old garden specimen always draws attention. One of our finest native shrubs!
