 A native of North America, the Box Huckleberry's natural home is in a wide area of the eastern portion of the U.S. from Pennsylvania to Tennessee.

There have been some cases of the Box Huckleberry spreading as far south as North Carolina where the growing conditions have become perfect for this subshrub to flourish.

  This is a low-growing subshrub that has become famous for its name being used in the famous stories of Mark Twain. However, the family of Gaylussacia brachycera includes heathers and blueberries that are known to have their origins in South America. Many of the family members of the Box Huckleberry family are found in the nation of Brazil with this family member a popular part of American culture.

  The flowers of the Box Huckleberry appear in early Summer with the small pink and white flowers being some of the most popular with gardeners across the eastern third of the U.S.

The ability of this small shrub to grow in acidic soils makes it a good option for areas of the region where soils are difficult to grow ornamental shrubbery. A range of different soil types is excellent for growing box huckleberry with loamy and clay soils among the best choices for this shrub. The Box Huckleberry is a shrub that grows with deep green foliage that grows best in part shade areas of any yard to create interest low to the ground. The foliage of the Box Huckleberry provides Fall interest that sees the leaves turn a deep crimson color before falling to the ground during the Fall.
