Wintergreen are wonderful plants and will remain green all year long. You can also find these plants also under Evergreens. One of the popular plants of this variety is the Eastern Teaberry. This plant was used as tea by soldiers in the American Revolution because there was a shortage. This plant was used when they needed and wanted tea. This plant was also used by Native Americans to treat headaches, sore throats, pain, fever and aches. The Wintergreen flavor is still used today. We use it in products such as chewing gum, toothpaste, mouthwash, mints and also in tobacco products. These plants smell great and their smell can also be found in ointments used in treating arthritis and joint pains. The ointments also are used to treat eczema and ski problems. You will also find this aroma during Christmas holidays in candles and air fresheners. You will need to be careful with these plants because some people are allergic to them and can have very bad reactions that are similar to asthma. You can find a wide selection of Wintergreen and Evergreen plants at a great online plant and tree nursery. You will receive these plants in quality condition and they will be ready for you to plant. These are great trees and shrubs and can be used in many ways to decorate your lawn or home. These trees and shrubs smell lovely and will bring your home to life around the holidays and all through-out the year.
