UVA URSI/ BEARBERRY (ARCTOSTAPHYLOS UVA-URSI)

8.95

Uva Ursi (aka Bearberry and Kinnikinnick), is most often used today as a genito-urinary tract anti-septic, and it finds it way into most formulas for complaints, irritations, and infections in the urinary system, including formulas for UTI's and cystitis.  This trailing evergreen shrub has oval, evergreen leaves, and bears beautiful bell-shaped flowers (which draw hummingbirds) in the spring and edible red berries in the fall- the leaves are the part used medicinally.  Uva Ursi is native to New England.   It prefers a sunny site and acidic soils, and can easily withstand sandy and rocky soils, establishing itself in areas other plants cannot easily grow.  Very cold-hardy in our zone.
