Trailing Arbutus is a common evergreen vine. This plant can be known as Mayflower to many. This plant grows along the ground as a covering plant. Trailing Arbutus is the floral symbol of Nova Scotia. This plant can be found growing along the northern portions of the East Coast. The Blooms it creates are small and trumpet shaped, often pink that fades into white. These blooms are slightly fragrant. When the Blooms can be done the plant, produces small raspberry-like fruits. Trailing Arbutus grows best in humus soils that can be acidic.Also know as the Mayflower plant, is believed by some to be the first plant that was seen by pilgrims during their first spring in America. Many scientists believe it may have even been around since the last glacial age. This trailing plant has fuzzy stems and white or light pink blooms emit a sweet fragrance. Unique in this method, it grows and maintains its nourishment from a certain fungus that feeds the plants roots.  Despite its best efforts, the trailing arbutus is very difficult to relocate. The seeds that are carried off by ants very rarely yield any fruit. The rarity of these beautiful plants is only increasing due to the constant destruction of its native environment and its difficulty in transplantation.  Trailing arbutus that may grow in the wild should be left alone and, in fact, may be protected by law depending on the state. If the wild plant grows out of its natural habitat, it may very well be the last one that is ever found in the area. Fortunately, many native plant nurseries have tried to continue the survival of the plant by propagating more. Soil should be moist and acidic. Full or partial shade is also needed. It can grow where many other plants have failed. The trailing arbutus does best in zones 3 through 7. When planting, the root ball should plant so that the top is only about one inch below the surface. Water thoroughly after to planting to ensure that the roots receive enough water. Natural mulch can be added lightly around the plant. Once it grows, it needs little maintaining and care with the exception of regular watering and the addition of mulch as needed.
