Dot, your mother is quite correct. Sparkleberry and huckleberry are in the same family. Same situation as with monkeys, chimps, orangs, gorillas, and humans, all being the primate family. A difference with sparkleberry is that it can grow into a tree whereas most of that family remains short and bushy. Also, it is only hardy in the south while bush huckleberries can be found virtually at the tree line on mountainsides.
