Arctostaphylos uva-ursi; the bearberry is common in many regions of Iceland but seems to be obsolete in some highland regions. The foremost characteristic trait is the leathery broad-leaves. From there, tubular flowers - much incised towards the top - grow in small bundles. The red fruits are sour and very dry to the mouth. In regions where it does grow it is common and very much a major element in the vegetation.
It is a member of the Heath family (Ericaceae). The Icelandic name of this species is Sortulyng
