Uva Ursi, or bearberry, is an evergreen ground cover that works well on banks or slopes. Its dark green shiny leaves contrast nicely with its bright pink flowers and red berries. Being that the Uva Ursi is a perennial evergreen, the color does not quit and can be enjoyed throughout the year.
Uva Ursi is seeing much attention for the medicinal properties that are found in its leaves.
