Arctostaphylos uva ursi

This native evergreen ground cover thrives in well-drained soils, even in sand. It needs little care. Prostrate trailing branches thickly covered with small, dark green leaves yield white or pink blossoms in late spring. Bright red edible berries follow, lasting well into winter. Native Americans valued the berries as food and the leaves in smoking mixtures, though now the fruit is most often eaten by birds. It is a beautiful way to cover a lot of ground in a hurry.

It is great for sunny slopes and cascading down from atop walls. 4 inch pot. It is self fertile and grows in USDA Zones 5-10.

Size: 4 Inch Pot


Ask a Question
  • How fast does it spread and is it hard to control? I'm recovering from a Bishop's Weed invasion (previous owner) and don't want another monster, even if it is native.

    It is slow to start and never as invasive or difficult to controls as Bishop's Weed

  • What do they taste like? good for eating right off the plant?

    The berries are not choice eating fresh and are best cooked, or even fried!

Plant arrived in great shape!

Excellently packaged, great planting instructions and a beautiful plant. It's doing very well in the yard.

Great condition, already growing, fast reponce times

They came in good condition, I immediately up-potted to 1 gallons, and I am already seeing nice new growth (indicative of healthy plants and root systems). Also, I emailed inquiring about when they were sending the plants and got an immediate reply. Hope to plant in fall when the backyard hardscaping in finally done. Will order from this nursery again.
