Bearberry (1/9)

List item

This is Arctostaphylos uva-ursi, better known as bearberry or kinnikinnick. The plant is a trailing shrub that forms dense mats in the forests. The small, bell-shaped pink blossoms are pretty and later produce edible berries. As the common name implies, bears (and humans) do eat the berries. This is also a medicinal plant.
