Have you ever wondered what exactly a farkleberry is? Sometimes known as "sparkleberry," the farkleberry is a shrub or small tree known for its dark berries. It's a good example of a plant that is evergreen in some areas and deciduous in others, depending on the winter temperatures.

Some people find the berries too tart for words, while others think they have a sweetness similar to wild blueberries. If you're not brave enough to try one yourself, that's okay. The birds will thank-you and then give you show to watch from inside your window with your morning coffee. VacciniumArboreum or farkleberry is available in our berry plants section.
