A compact shrub with glossy evergreen foliage that turns red in fall. In spring it sports small white flowers which later become edible blue berries. The berries are like traditional blueberries except they have fewer and larger seeds. 'Berried Treasure' grows low to the ground making it an excellent groundcover and a reliable interest for years to come. The foliage rises about a foot or so off the ground from ample rhizomes and its flowers attract butterflies and are also a great boost for local bee populations. This shrub prefers partial shade and is great for naturalizing.
