Description for Arctostaphylos uva-ursi

Arctostaphylos uva-ursi, known by a large number of common names including common bearberry and kinninnick, is an extremely winter hardy, creeping, slow-growing, prostrate, woody evergreen shrub that typically grows to 6-12 inch tall but spreads over time by flexible branching (roots at the nodes) to 3-6 inch wide or more.

Common name Flower colours Bloom time Height Difficulty
Bearberry, Kinnikinnick, Red Bearberry, Cowberry, Manzanita, Mealberry. White with tinge of pink April to May 0.50 to 1.00 feet easy to grow

Planting and care

Use bearberry on hillsides or over rocky ground that needs coverage. It’s ideal for use as ground cover underneath shrubs or around trees. Plant it along a rock wall and it will cascade down over the edge, softening the look of your landscape perimeter. If you live near the ocean, bearberry is salt-resistant, so use it as a seaside ground cover.
