Michigan is a bearberry state. The plants are found growing on the dunes, near lakes, and inland throughout the pine forest. Our Michigan bearberry clones have been collected in Keweenaw County and selected from vigorous plants. The selections are not as compact, the elliptic shaped leaves are 3/4 inches long and 1/2 or more wide. The leaves are olive to deep green and flower and fruit profusely. Hardiness Zones 3-7.
