The Q&A Archives: evergreen huckleberry

Question: I have looked up information on the height and width of evergreen huckleberry in the 2 different books, Sunset Western Garden book and Gardening With Ed Hume. They give opposite information regarding size when plants are located in sun compared to shade, so I'm wondering who is correct. What is the typical size of Vaccinium ovatum, evergreen huckleberry, grown in a sunny location compared to a shady one? Thank you for clearing up this question for me.

Answer: Vaccinium ovatum will reach a mature size of 2-3 feet (60-90 cm) in sun, and up to 12 feet (4 m) in shade. Happy to clear up the confusion!
