16. Vaccinium corymbosum Linnaeus, Sp. Pl. 1: 350. 1753.

High-bush blueberry, bleuet en corymbe

Cyanococcus amoenus (Aiton) Small; C. atrococcus (A. Gray) Small; C. corymbosus (Linnaeus) Rydberg; C. cuthbertii Small; C. elliottii (Chapman) Small; C. fuscatus (Aiton) Small; C. holophyllus Small; C. margarettae (Ashe) Small; C. simulatus (Small) Small; C. virgatus (Aiton) Small; Vaccinium amoenum Aiton; V. atrococcum (A. Gray) A. Heller; V. australe Small; V. constablaei A. Gray; V. corymbosum var. albiflorum (Hooker) Fernald; V. corymbosum var. glabrum A. Gray; V. elliottii Chapman; V. formosum Andrews; V. fuscatum Aiton; V. simulatum Small; V. virgatum Aiton

Plants erect, not colonial, sometimes suckering, 10-50 dm; twigs green, angular to terete, usually hairy in lines. Leaves usually deciduous; blade dark green, ovate to narrowly elliptic, 15-70 × 10-25 mm, subcoriaceous, margins sharply serrate or entire, surfaces glabrous or hairy abaxially. Flowers: calyx green, glabrous; corolla white to pink, ± cylindric, 5-12 mm; filaments usually ciliate. Berries dull black to blue, glaucous, 4-12 mm diam., glabrous. Seeds 10-20(-25), ca. 1.2 mm. 2 n = 24, 48, 72.

Flowering spring(-early summer). Open swamps, bogs, sandy margins of lakes, ponds, and streams, flatwoods, gray-birch scrub, pine barrens, mires, bay heads, upland ericaceous meadows, upland woods, ravines, mountain summits; 0-1600 m; B.C., N.B., N.S., Ont., Que.; Ala., Conn., Del., Fla., Ga., Ill., Ind., Ky., La., Maine, Md., Mass., Mich., Miss., Mo., N.H., N.J., N.Y., N.C., Ohio, Okla., Pa., R.I., S.C., Tenn., Tex., Vt., Va., Wash., W.Va., Wis.; introduced in Europe (Britain, The Netherlands), e Asia (Japan), Pacific Islands (New Zealand).

Every morphological variant of the high-bush blueberry has been named formally at one time or another. At least 25 such taxa have been raised to specific rank; none is distinct throughout its putative range nor has the properties normally associated with biological species, including Vaccinium atrococcum and V. elliottii . See S. P. Vander Kloet (1980) for a complete list of synonyms. Feral populations readily become established wherever cultivars have been planted, e.g., Britain, British Columbia, Japan, Missouri, The Netherlands, New Zealand, Washington, and Wisconsin.
