The low growing shrub Bearberry (Arctostaphylos uva-ursi) is often used as a native groundcover on dry, sandy and rocky soils, in full sun to light shade. Grows naturally on sandy beaches and dry, open woodlands in sandy soil. The plants spread gradually by surface rhizomes to form a mat. Requires an acid soil with a pH between 4.0 and 6.0. Will not grow on clay.

Bearberry is a host plant for several butterfly species including Hoary Elfin, Brown Elfin and Freija Fritillary.
