|Bilberry in flower|
The bilberry is known by many names. It is also called blaeberry, whortleberry, whinberry, myrtle blueberry, fraughan, and probably other names in different places. In Thomas Hardy's 1878 book, The Return of the Native, they were called black-hearts in 19th century southern England.
