Wintergreen Teaberry Plants Gaultheria procumbens

Wintergreen/Teaberry is an understory plant in the blueberry family.  It is commonly found in hardwood forests with light to moderate shade and acidic soil. It will also grow in moist organically enriched soil and clay, and it grows best in moist well-drained soil.  It makes an excellent groundcover in shady areas of the landscape, tolerating even heavy shade. 

Plant in a rock garden, woodland garden, or along a foundation. When the leaves are crushed, a wintergreen fragrance is released. Plants can be spaced 10-14 inches apart but will tend to spread and form a dense carpet.  The round fleshy scarlet seed capsules are a food source for a variety of birds and small animals. They are also edible for humans.

You will receive 25 plant tops that have been produced from runners.
