Cranberry

The cranberries are a group of evergreen dwarf shrubs.

They are found in acidic bogs throughout the cooler parts of the Northern Hemisphere.

Cranberries are low, creeping shrubs to 10 cm tall (often less), with slender, wiry stems, not thickly woody, and small evergreen leaves.

The name cranberry probably derives from their being a favourite food of cranes.
