The Vaccinium Uliginosum (Arctic or Alpine Blueberry) is native to cool temperature regions of the Northern Hemisphere. Alpine blueberries can be found in all of Alaska except portions of the northern coastal plain and western Aleutians. Vaccinium Uliginosum is a small deciduous shrub growing to cm 10–75 centimeters tall, rarely 1 meter (3.3 inches) tall, with brown stems. It grows on wet acidic soils on heathland, moorland, tundra, and in the understory of coniferous forest, from sea level in the Arctic, up to 3,400 meters altitude in the south of the range. The leaves are oval, 4–30 millimeters long and 2–15 millimeters wide, blue-green with pale net-like veins, with a smooth margin and rounded apex.Vaccinium uliginosum is a small deciduous shrub growing to cm 10–75 centimeters tall, rarely 1 meter tall, with brown stems.
