The flowers are waxy white to pale pink and bell-shaped and hang beneath the new leaves. The blue-black berries are round, with a flat top.
Interesting Fact: Did you know that bilberry juice was once used to treat typhoid fever? The antiseptic and germicidal nature of the herb helped to kill off the typhoid bacillus. The juice was also used as a tonic for the kidneys and to treat diarrhoea.
