wait — you mean cranberry (which nearly grows wild where I live)? hmmm….never seen it potted. What an interesting idea….

Yes, edible cranberry, but I think the first commentor has the subgenus/species. It is same genus as blueberries.

The name used to be vaccinium oxycoccos. It may have changed by now and grew as a native plant in bogs of southeast Alaska. Vaccinium vitis-idaea is a lovely little vaccinium with beefy green leaves and a ground creeper as well, and Linnaea borealis. They can be grown easily from rhizomes, but be cautious about taking native plants from the wild. A native plant society might be able to source some for you.
