From the Wikipedia page on Bilberry:

Bilberry is a name given to several species of low-growing shrubs in the genus Vaccinium (family Ericaceae) that bears fruits. The species most often referred to is Vaccinium myrtillus L., primarily known as the European blueberry. Other names are blaeberry, whortleberry, whinberry (or winberry),wimberry, myrtle blueberry, fraughan, and other names regionally. They were called black-hearts in 19th century southern England, according to Thomas Hardy's 1878 novel, The Return of the Native, (pg. 311, Oxford World's Classics edition). In Germany and Austria, Bilberrys are referred to as "blueberrys", whereas the garden blueberry is called "Heidelbeere".
