Description Fine Print
 
Arctostaphylos uva-ursi, known as kinnikinnick or bear berry, is a slow-growing evergreen shrub with a prostrate habit that makes an excellent native ground cover and slope stabilizer from sun to part shade. It features reddish-gray, peeling bark and small, lustrous, dark green leaves that turn burgundy in the winter. The urn-shaped white to pinkish flowers are visited by bees and are followed by showy orange-red berries that are eaten by wildlife and were also used by First Nations peoples. In dry, hot habitats kinnikinnick will have an open habit. With better soils and more moisture it will form a dense, weed-suppressing mat.
