I only know them as 'Bear Berries' so I Googled. Big Grin Scientific name of the plant "Arctostaphylos" means "bunch of bear's grape" in Greek language. Uva-ursi is another name of the plant with the same meaning (bear's grape in Latin language). http://www.softschools.com/fac...

Gorgeous banner. Reminds me of wintergreen which grows wild here in the woodlands.

Beautiful banner, Margaret. Thanks for looking it up for us. I was also wondering what bear berries were.
