Bilberries are ground-growing aren't they?

I've always wondered as I think that what my family calls blueberries, might actually be bilberries (we've always picked them when in the right places in Norway - but bearing in mind Norwegian mum, I have found over the years that I sometimes call things by different names) as all the blueberries I've seen in garden centres and the like have been 'bushes', not the low growing plants I'm used to.

Just to make you sick :0) mum has alpine strawberries, wild raspberries, rowan (she make fab rowan jelly), wild garlic, etc, etc, all growing by her, although she hasn't had much time, of late, to go foraging.

I'll have to take my camera next time. I think there's some pics on Elaines blog. actually there is a pic here, but now very clear, if you scroll down.
They are low bushes- 1-3' high. they grow amongst the heather here.
I have alpine strawberries and a rowan in the garden, not wild though, but there are wild raspberries around here, and plenty of rowans. I have just planted some blackcurrants, which seem quite happy here (1000')

I think what I think of as blueberries are probably bilberries then :0)

I planning to put some raspberry canes in in the autumn as whilst there appear to be loads of raspberries in the woods, none of them appear to be fruiting. Blackberries are rampant - though a little early this year IMO.
