Velvet leaved blueberry – Vaccinium myrtilloides

Another tasty berry, ready in late July and August. It grows well in open coniferous forests on sand or gravel. I am very lucky to have lots of blueberries growing right outside my door.
Other flowers blooming this week are purple pea vine, false solomon’s seal, indian paintbrush, rose, pineappleweed, pussytoes, twinberry, red osier dogwood and cranberry. It’s getting hard to choose among the many.
