Evergreen Blueberries and Huckleberries?

I have noticed this winter that not all the leaves have fallen off the blueberry and huckleberry bushes. So far, all the ones I have seen with leaves have been quite short (a foot or less). I wonder if it is due to the mild winter or if this is a regular occurance. Some of the leaves are reddish others are the normal green. I’ve noticed it on red huckleberries (Vaccinium parvifolium) for sure and I think on some of the blueberries (V. spp.) as well.
