This is a great video discussing this wild plant, its uses and medicinal qualities.
It also shows how to harvest the plant. Great video!

This plant’s medicinal properties: Good for inflammation of the urinary tract, the digestive tract as it is stringent. You can make tea from it, or make a tincture when plant is picked fresh.

This plant is also known as Kinnikinnick, loosely translated as “Smoking blend”, it was used as part of a mixture of other plants to make a ceremonial tobacco.
