Gaultheria procumbens

image to come

Native evergreen ground cover with wintergreen-scented, dark glossy leaves. Delicate drooping bell flowers in late summer give way to edible scarlet berries. Trouble free in well-drained location with good moisture. Slow growing but very handsome. White flowers appear between July and August.

One of our New England Woodlanders: perennials that are native to New England, nursery propagated, but never collected from the wild; grown in New Hampshire.

Native to the United States.
