I live in central Maine. I live in central Maine. Bearberry is a native shrub which grows low to the ground, flowers in the spring, produces berries which birds like, and makes a terrific ground cover. I planted some on the slope in front of my house as part of a larger effort to eliminate lawn, particularly in hard-to-mow areas. The slope is right by the road and gets lots of snow, ice, gravel, and salt dumped onto it by the snowplows, but a landscaper said it wouldn't be a problem. She was right. The bearberry isn't just surviving: it's thriving and spreading!
