The little, bell-shaped pinkish-white, waxy flowers on the Bearberry plants on Cape Cod are so pretty… and so delicate. These pretty little flowers turn into bright red berries in the fall and winter.
Bearberry is a low-growing ground cover that you can find along the roadsides and many of the trails on Cape Cod. Its teardrop-shaped, leathery leaves are dark green. You can find the white or pale pink flowers between March and June, so you still have a little time.
