    Posted by Lance Ryan on 17th Mar 2017

    Got what I expected. Roots could have been wrapped a bit more securely. But overall nice plant, received in a timely manner.

Description

Farkleberry Shrub - Vaccinium Arboreum.


A beautiful decorative shrub, the Farkleberry Shrub has shiny dark green leaves, along with white bell flowers and blackberries. The bush attracts fruit-eating birds and mammals. It needs a medium amount of water and partial shade and should be planted in sandy or rocky dry soil. 


Farkleberry Tree has multiple names likes Sparkleberry or Huckleberry and many more.

Even though it is called tree, this plant usually only grows to become a shrub, but in the rare cases that shrub grows to become a tree, it just becomes a small tree with a short trunk. It is decorated with little beautiful bell-shaped flowers which range from a bright white to a goldish yellow. These flowers can measure about the ½ inch in length and usually blooms in the Spring and early Summer months. Other than the beautiful flowers this tree produces, it also produces a type of Blueberry. These are some of the enormous blueberries with large seeds, and they are often called Huckleberries. The flowers and fruit are inedible to humans but are frequently enjoyed by the trees surrounding wildlife. The leaves are dark green in the Spring/Summer time but turn to a vibrant red in the Fall. You can find this species of the tree all around the United States but mostly in the South. This reason is that in the wild this particular tree is located near dry hillsides, dunes, and rocky woods. Some of the recommended soils are rocky or sandy based soils. If you are planting the seeds for this tree, then you will need to show them an acid soil mix but not one with a high acid count. The best thing about this plant is that it causes few allergies and is extremely wind resistant. The wood from Farkleberry trees is sometimes used for the handles of tools. This tree/shrub has seen a very durable and robust plant that can survive in dry places.

Farkleberry Shrub grows best in Planting Zones 6 through 9 and can reach 15 feet in height.
