They hail to the temperate and subarctic regions of the northern hemisphere, and are well known in the mountainous parts of Europe, Asia and North America. While the berries harvested from the plant are used to make a variety of fruit pastries and tasty jams, the leaves are harvested to create a refreshing herbal tea.
