Can You Identify This Plant?


I found this image over on  Little Yard.  But the site is in Japanese….and google translate isn’t a help.  I would love to know what it is…it makes a lovely container plant don’t you think.  Ideas?

Hi, I'm Rochelle and for 18 years I have worked as a landscape designer, author/writer, and design teacher. I've designed residential and hospitality (for hotels, restaurants, and spas) gardens across the USA and in the UK, Europe and the Middle East. After many years of teaching garden design topics in person, I launched the PITH + VIGOR Boot Camp series in early 2018. Through my blog, social media, and online courses (Garden Design Bootcamp and Planting Design Boot Camp) I aim to help homeowners learn how to confidently design and create home gardens that reflect their own personal and unique style.

      thanks! will go look that up — is it edible?

        wait — you mean cranberry (which nearly grows wild where I live)? hmmm….never seen it potted. What an interesting idea….

    Yes, edible cranberry, but I think the first commentor has the subgenus/species. It is same genus as blueberries.

    it’s Red Whortleberry plant 🙂

    Whortleberry has bigger leaves, and berries grow in group

    What zone is it rated?

    The name used to be vaccinium oxycoccos. It may have changed by now and grew as a native plant in bogs of southeast Alaska. Vaccinium vitis-idaea is a lovely little vaccinium with beefy green leaves and a ground creeper as well, and Linnaea borealis. They can be grown easily from rhizomes, but be cautious about taking native plants from the wild. A native plant society might be able to source some for you.
