Vaccinium vitis-idaea Koralle (Lingonberry )

This low-growing deciduous shrub forms a mat of rooting stems bearing small, glossy, dark green leaves and tiny pink-tinged white flowers that give way to large, bright red berries that ripen in midsummer. The foliage turns an attractive burgundy shade in winter, providing late season interest. Moderate growth rate.
