Arctostaphylos uva-ursi ‘Vancouver Jade’


Bearberry

USDA Zone: 4-9

Plant number: 7.055.100


Also know as Kinnikinnick, this is a selection of a native North American wildflower, introduced by the U.B.C. Botanical Gardens. Plants form a dense mat of glossy evergreen leaves, the stems rooting along the ground. Light pink bell-shaped flowers appear in spring, followed by a showy display of scarlet berries. Foliage turns a beautiful bronzy-red in winter, particularly in colder regions. Best in a well-drained sandy to loam soil, this dislikes poorly-drained clay. Drought tolerant, once established. Registered with COPF: royalty required for propagation.
