Arctostaphylos uva-ursi - common bearberry

Not all red berries in the xeric heath forest are lingonberries (Vaccinium vitis-idaea); you may also find bearberries there. Bearberry is not that closely related to lingonberry even though they resemble each other and often thrive in the same areas. They can be distinguished by their shoots: bearberry shoots creep softly on the ground forming carpet-like patches; lingonberry shoots are erect.
