Arctostaphylos uva-ursi ‘Mass Hybrid’
CT RG DR P
Excellent slow-growing, low maintenance, evergreen ground cover that typically grows 6-12” tall and spreads 2-6’ wide. Reddish-brown branches bear dense glossy foliage that turns burgundy-bronze in the fall. Clusters of drooping white-pink bell-shaped flowers bloom in late spring yielding abundant red berry-like fruits in the fall. Attracts butterflies, native bees, songbirds, and small mammals. Larval host for Hoary and Brown Elfin butterflies.
Prefers full to part sun, and grows best in well-drained, acidic soil without added fertilizer. Tolerates infertile soil, erosion, drought, salt and wind. Great for sandy slopes and banks or along rock walls where it can cascade over the edges.
