Sparkleberry

Sparkleberry is a deciduous shrub with small glossy leathery leaves.  It can become a small tree to 25 feet.  Large old specimens can be very attractive especially with artistic pruning.  The fragrant small bell-shaped white flowers appear in spring and are followed by small black berries.  While this plant is a blueberry, the fruits are not generally considered to be edible.  Sparkleberry is rarely available from nurseries but is native and widespread in the southern U.S., particularly in sandy soils.
