Black huckleberry is a low-growing, colonial shrub that grows in sandy, well-drained soils. The small, pinkish-red flowers have a lantern-like shape similar to the flowers of blueberry. They attract bees and butterflies. The berries also resemble blueberries, but when fully ripe, are such a deep shade of blue that they appear almost black. The juicy fruit has blueberry-like flavors with hints of blackberry.
