This is a dwarf evergreen shrub with short needle-like leaves.
It has small, shiny, black berries that remain on the bush
throughout the winter.
Habitat and Distribution
Look for this plant in tundra throughout arctic regions of
North America and Eurasia.
The fruits are edible fresh or can be dried for later use.
Crowberry doesn't usually produce an abundance of berries,
but because the berries often cling to the plant through the
winter, it's a wild food worth knowing.
