Arctostaphylos uva-ursi - Bearberry

Bearberry
Arctostaphylos uva-ursi
Family: ERICACEAE

Imagine traveling through northern Europe and Asia to find a native shrub you already know! Thats right, bearberry is the only member of the manzanita genus, Arctostaphylos, that occurs outside of North and Central America. Look for the mat-forming habit in sandy or rocky soils with its small, rounded leaves and bright red berries.
