Vaccinium macrocarpon, Oxycoccus macrocarpus, Large Cranberry, American Cranberry, Bearberry

Click to see full-size image Vaccinium macrocarpon, Oxycoccus macrocarpus
Family: Ericaceae
Large Cranberry, American Cranberry, Bearberry
Origin: North America
Groundcover and low-growing 2ftSmall shrub 2-5 ftFull sunSemi-shadeKeep soil moistPink flowersEthnomedical plant.
Plants marked as ethnomedical and/or described as medicinal, are not offered as medicine but rather as ornamentals or plant collectibles.
Ethnomedical statements / products have not been evaluated by the FDA and are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease. We urge all customers to consult a physician before using any supplements, herbals or medicines advertised here or elsewhere.EdibleSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short time

Vaccinium macrocarpon is the major source of cultivated cranberries. It is an evergreen shrub growing under 1 ft and as wide as 3-4 ft at a medium rate. Best grown in damp, acidic (pH 4.0-5.2), organically rich, well-drained soil in full sun. Self-pollinating.

The commercially grown cranberry is a low-growing vine which is grown in wet bogs that periodically can be flooded to provide winter protection, control weeds and pests, and facilitate harvesting of the crop.

Cranberry can be grown in garden soil in somewhat the same manner as blueberries. It features fuchsia-pink flowers in spring which give way to bright red cranberries that mature in September-October. If massed, plants can form a carpet of green foliage. This plant can be grown for the food crop, as an ornamental or both.

Cranberries are typically subject to chlorosis problems if soil pH is too high.

Grow in the fruit or vegetable garden for the food crop. Ornamentally, may be grown as a small scale ground cover for sunny areas or in the shrub or mixed border in front of other acid-loving plants such as azaleas and rhododendrons.

It is very cold hardy (zone 3-9).

Family: Ericaceae
Bilberry
Small shrub 2-5 ftSemi-shadeRegular waterRed/crimson/vinous flowersEthnomedical plant.
Plants marked as ethnomedical and/or described as medicinal, are not offered as medicine but rather as ornamentals or plant collectibles.
Ethnomedical statements / products have not been evaluated by the FDA and are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease. We urge all customers to consult a physician before using any supplements, herbals or medicines advertised here or elsewhere.EdibleSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short time

Bilberries are found in very acidic, nutrient-poor soils throughout the temperate and subarctic regions of the world.

The fruit is smaller than that of the Blueberry but with a fuller taste.

The fruits can be eaten fresh or made into jams, juices or pies. In folk medicine, bilberry leaves were used to treat gastrointestinal ailments, applied topically, or made into infusions. In European herbal medicine, bilberry fruit preparations are now used to enhance poor micro-circulation, including eye conditions such as night-blindness and diabetic retinopathy. The leaves have been used as a tea substitute.
