Vaccinium ciliatum is a deciduous shrub found on forest edges in mountainous regions, growing up to 2m in height, with coarse hairs throughout. Its young branches are incredibly dense. Leaves are simple, alternate phyllotaxis, each 4-9cm in length, 2.5-6 in width, in the shape of a broad-oblong, densely haired, and margins are entire. Petioles measure 1-2mm in size. Young branch tops give birth to 4-7cm long racemes with many white flowers, which bloom facing downwards. The flowers are bell-shaped, cleft in five, with ten stamens inside. Bloom time: May-June.
