200 year-old house on 25 rocky acres in high country upstate NY and SO many highbush blueberries!

It is really neat to constantly be discovering things about my property, and watch mysteries turn into solved mysteries. Here's another one. This is a small bush that was by my front door. (Between the basil plants under buckets in an earlier post about the last freeze.) I saved it from destruction as I was clearing the area to plant herbs because it just looked like something that might have been put there on purpose.
The leaves have red edges and are prickly/furry on the back. I can't find it in the only books I have, Peterson's Trees and Shrubs or Peterson's Wildflowers. I'm guessing, because it's not a wildflower. Anyhow - any thoughts?
