Wintergreen

Gaultheria procumbens

An American native evergreen groundcover, Gaultheria procumbens, also called wintergreen, requires a shady location with rich, organic soil to thrive. This low-growing shrub spreads by underground runners. It can be difficult to get established unless you can offer it a cool, moist climate with acidic soil. The plants produce white blooms in the summer that eventually turn into handsome and edible bright red berries that attract birds and other wildlife. Leaves are glossy green all year long and release a minty fragrance when crushed.
