Bearberry
BEARBERRY $4.50 Arctostaphylos uva-ursi
Exquisite, tough colorful
One of the prettiest groundcovers that can tolerate harsh conditions. The ground hugging wiry branches are covered with glistening green, rounded evergreen leaves. Dainty pink and white bell flowers in spring are followed by scarlet edible berries. Shiny leaves turn deep maroon in fall, staying reddish all winter. Hardy zones 4 thru 8- it likes well drained sandy or gravelly soil-not for clay! Excellent trailing over walls, even on sand dunes areas, looks great mixed with creeping junipers and conifers.
