    American wintergreen

    Posted by Joanne Debes on Jun 19 , 2020

    I have ordered bare root plants before so knew what to expect
    These plants look ok but I received them over a week late so who knows where they were all that time!
    I probably won’t order from your company again
    I think the service and products could have been much better

Description

American Wintergreen Plant - Mitchella Repens is a Beautifully Attractive Ornamental Woodland Plant

 

American wintergreen Plant beautiful and attractive woodland plant with highly ornamental foliage has many other names: squaw vine, squawberry, two-eyed berry, Winberry, running box, and pigeon plum. It was named Wildflower of the Year in 2012. A North American low-growing, herbaceous, perennial shrub belonging to the madder family (Rubiaceae), the name is the Latin adjective repens, meaning "creeping." This evergreen plant with scarlet berries grows as a non-climbing vine that reaches no taller than two inches with its creeping stems 15 to 30 cm long. The shiny dark green rounded leaves with a pale yellow midrib are paired oppositely on the stalks. The petioles are short.

 American Wintergreen Plants will Thrive in the Forest as well as Garden Settings with Other Plants and Flowers

Partridge Berry  also known as American Wintergreen Plant axillary fragrant pinkish-white flowers are in small and trumpet-shaped pairs, with each pair arising from one common calyx. Each flower has one pistil, four stamens, and four white petals. There are either flowers with long pistils and short stamens or short pistils and long stamens, and the pollen from one does not fertilize the other. It can be used as a groundcover underneath acid-loving shrubs and in terraria during the winter. The name suggests that partridges relish the berries, but various birds and mammals also consume them. In fact, Indian women often drank a tea made from the leaves as a childbirth aid.
'Squaw Root' in this case does not refer to the common name of various Cohosh plants, but instead for the attractive tuber which grows out of the ground resembling a yellow pinecone or ear of corn.

The plant often seen in forests. However, it can thrive in a garden setting with other plants and flowers. Although the plant doesn't grow very tall, it gives off a delightful aroma that smells like mint. The red berries on the plant are edible and are often used in recipes in the fall and winter months as this is when the plant usually grows best. 

 

 The plant grows better in shady areas that see little sunshine during the day. As the plant begins to grow and creep along the ground, the leaves start to develop a dark green and almost glossy color. During the winter months, the leaves start to turn dark red to match the berries that are growing — the berries of the wintergreen plant often used in beverages, perfumes, and different types of candy. 

 

 Acidic soil is usually the best environment for the wintergreen plant. You'll tend to find the plant in the western half of the United States but can grow in areas like Georgia or Alabama. The plant tends to grow near rhododendrons and other mountain flowers and underlying plants that don't require a lot of moisture or sunlight to thrive and grow.

American Wintergreen Plant
The American Wintergreen Plant is a shrub that is known for its beautiful leaves and red berries that grow during the fall and winter months. When the temperatures are cooler, the berries appear to have frost on them, sparkling when the sun shines on them and the green leaves of the plant. The berries are often used for various medical treatments as well, such as topical treatments or coughs.

The height of the plant reaches about eight inches when fully grown. It grows well in partial sunlight and soil that is a combination of moist and dry as it doesn't need a lot of water to thrive. You'll usually notice blooms on the plant in April and May with berries following soon after. This plant is a cousin to the blueberry plant with the berries reaching almost the same size as blueberries. You'll typically find the plant in the northern areas of the United States and in the lower areas of Canada as it tends to grow best in colder climates. The leaves are oval in shape and have a texture that feels like leather. When around the plant, you can detect a fragrant smell of mint that is given off by the leaves.
