SHRUB ID. …..29/10/2011…….S.S……..2nd.: I would be very grateful if someone could id this beautiful shrub.
Date/Time-……………………………………………………….5th April 2011.
Location- Place, Altitude, GPS-………………………………Kalimpong ridge. West Bengal
Habitat-Garden/ Urban/ Wild/ Type-………………………..Wild shrub, growing besides the road.
Plant Habit- Tree/ Shrub/ Climber/ Herb-…………………Shrub
Height/Length-……………………………………………………Sorry cannot remember.
Leaves Type/ Shape/ Size-……………………………………See pic.
Inflorescence Type/ Size-………………………………………See pic.
Flowers Size/ Colour/ Calyx/ Bracts-………………………..See pic.

This appears to be a member of Ericaceae. Sadly the genus is not familiar to me. The closest I know is Arbutus but the leaf shape seems wrong.


Please check species of Vaccinium of Ericaceae family.


Hmm! Interesting. Vaccinium I had not thought of.
I am familiar with many Vacciniums and grow several sp.
It is the leathery evergreen leaves,that appear to be in whorls up the twig that I am finding hard.
I have found a link to a botanical drawing for Vaccinium vacciniaceum.
Would you be kind enought to say if you think I have a match.

Further link for advice.
Is this it? http://www.efloras.org/florataxon.aspx?flora_id=3&taxon_id=200016729


I too used the same link to reach Vaccinium but it was difficult for me to run the key without the specimen.
I think V.vacciniaceum is a certain choice.
Please refer the following link as well (I am not sure about the authenticity of the site).

Herb from Darjeeling area, some times on rocks and tree branches.


Is it a herb?… Some thing like Clerodendrum….


It is a shrub grows 3- 6 feet. One plant i found in shaded area


There are chances to be a Berberis Sp


For sure this is Vaccinium vacciniaceum
