Bearberry

Bearberry

Arctostaphylos uva-ursi 6-10" Also called Kinnikinick, Hog Cranberry, Mealberry, Sandberry, Mountain Box or Bear’s Grape.

Delicate low-growing beautiful glossy evergreen spreading groundcover. Beautiful in rock gardens. One plant can spread to 15'.

Small pinkish-white flowers in spring. Leaves are diuretic, astringent and antibacterial. Used before modern antibiotics in treating urinary infections. Tea may also have value as a general tonic.

Small bright red drupe-type berries color up in late summer and persist into winter. Too insipid for fresh eating, but often fried with fish.

Prefers poor sandy infertile acid soils, tolerates salt. Can be sensitive to root disturbance, thus finicky in transplanting and may be slow to establish. Set plants 1-2' apart. No need ever to prune or fertilize. Sun or partial shade. Native to North America and Eurasia. Self-pollinating. Z2. Maine Grown. (potted transplants)
