Throughout most of the 1800's and up until 1936, Bearberry herb was the official recommendation for urinary tract infections in the U.S. Pharmacopeia. From the Chinese to Native Americans, people used this ground-hugging woody evergreen, a close relative of cranberry and blueberry, to treat urinary problems.

Its bright red berries ripen in the fall and survive throughout the winter to feed both birds and beasts, but herbal physicians have always been more interested in the plant's oval, dark green leaves.
