$26.99

Arctostaphylos uva-ursi 'Massachusetts Hybrid'

This beautiful looking native groundcover has an incredibly refined look for a plant that revels in poor, dry, infertile soils. 'Massachusetts' is a nearly prostrate grower with small, lustrous, deep green evergreen foliage that hugs the branches, providing a spreading carpet of lushness in the garden. Artostaphyllos is lovely draped over the edge of a wall or large rock. Its small green leaves have silver grey backs and often appear to be edged in silver. 'Massachusetts' flowers and fruits abundantly and is a disease-resistant selection with smaller leaves than the species. Introduced by West Coast Growers, seed for this selection originated in Massachusetts.

Interesting Notes

Along with its beauty, it provides a myriad of wildlife food and shelter with small native bees zeroing in its small, showy, white tinged pink flowers while birds and other small critters love its ample supply of plump red berries that cover the plant in late summer and fall. Even bigger critters love the berries. One of its common names, Bearberry, comes from the fact that even bears love to snack on its fruit!!
