Hillside Blueberry aka Bilberry, Blue Ridge, Dryland, Whortleberry (Vaccinium pallidum) can sometimes be confused with lowbush blueberry, but the margins of its leaves are not serrated (or have only sparse, irregular serrations). Mammals from chipmunks to black bear eat the berries (which range in color from blue to black). Humans regard the fruits as somewhat bland and mealy. Hillside blueberry is accustomed to dry and barren soil conditions, and thrives following fires that eliminate shading and competition.
