A low-growing sub-shrub, Bearberry makes an excellent native groundcover on dry sandy and rocky soils, in full sun to light shade. Spreading gradually by surface rhizomes to form a mat, it grows naturally near sandy beaches and open woodlands in sandy or rocky soils. This plant requires an acid soil with a pH between 4.0 and 6.0; it will not grow on clay. Bearberry is a host plant for several butterfly species including Hoary Elfin, Brown Elfin and Freija Fritillary.
