An ideal ground cover for year-round color and fragrance, Wintergreen is a good choice for woodland areas with acidic soil. This creeping, woody ground cover is native to Eastern North America and performs best when planted in soils that retain moisture. Its lustrous, oval evergreen leaves turn attractive shades of purple in the fall. Its waxy, nodding, bell-shaped white flowers bloom in early summer and give way to bright red berries that are good winter food for wildlife. Wintergreen also makes attractive Christmas decorations. This ground cover is a perfect complement to other acid-loving plants such as azaleas, rhododendrons and blueberries. Ships in 4" pot. Gaultheria procumbens
