For years I've called all the low blueberry species by the same name: “Tasty”! I simply didn't bother determining which species I was eating. But this year I decided to investigate and discovered that only two short species grow in Plainville. The first is Common Lowbush Blueberry (Vaccinium angustifolium), the only low-growing blueberry found throughout New England. This shrub stands about one foot tall and, at least in my area, has ripe fruit before the other low-growing species, Hillside Blueberry. Like Black Huckleberry, this shrub tends to fruit more when growing in sunny spots, so that's where you ought to look to find some for yourself.
