Many years ago Dr. Coville of the U.S. Department of Agriculture crossed chosen varieties of the wild Native American Highbush Blueberry Vaccinium corymbosum. The resulting plants are extremely ornamental with their scarlet autumn color and their red twigs in winter. They also produce large quantities of suculent blueberries. All of these original crosses of native blueberries were named with the word blue in the name. The canes may grow 6 to 12 feet in length if left unpruned, the species is generally trouble free and hardier than just zone 4 but sometimes not quite hardy enough to zone 3 (Wyman, 471).

The lowbush blueberry or Vaccinium angustifolium is a low growing bush native to the northern USA with hardiness around zone 2 and 3 that is self pollinating that we sometimes grow from seed, softwood cuttings or by purchasing a bunch every few years.
Half highs are also self pollinating, extremely hardy with larger berries than the low bush.
