Created By: Environmentally Endangered Lands Program


Shiny blueberry (Vaccinium myrsinites) is a common ground shrub native only to Florida, Alabama, Georgia, and South Carolina. It is often found in scrub and flatwood plant communities, especially when pines are present. Regular fires help to clear ground space for this plant to flourish. Blueberries are produced in late spring and early summer. Many species enjoy the berries, including the Florida Scrub-jays.
