Description

Patridgeberry (Mitchella repens L.) Is a Trailing or Creeping Perennial Herb

 

The partridgeberry plant grows in a dense mat of evergreen foliage producing white flowers in the spring and bright red berries in the fall and winter. It thrives in deciduous, coniferous, or mixed forests in partial or complete shade. It prefers humus-rich, acidic soil with a pH of 6.8 or below. In the home garden, it can be grown in areas that receive morning light with afternoon shade. Partridgeberries add interest to both the summer and winter garden. It can be tucked into shaded nooks, underneath shade trees, or even along the shady borders of your yard.

 

Partridgeberries Grow Wild in Wooded Areas Throughout Eastern North America

 

Partridgeberries form a dense mat of foliage when allowed to naturalize. The non-climbing vine grows to 6 to 12 inches in length and remains prostrate along with the soil. New roots form along the vine as it touches the ground creating new plants. This attractive groundcover grows to a height of 2 to 4 inches. It can be found growing wild from Canada to Florida and as far west as Minnesota and Texas.

 

Partridgeberry Plants Produce Brilliant Red Berries in Late Summer or Fall

 

After the flowers have faded, each partridgeberry plant produces one large, red berry that contains eight dark seeds. The berries are not edible but are consumed by birds and small mammals. In fact, the partridgeberry plant earned its name from the belief that partridges feast on the berries in the fall and winter.

 
Partridgeberries in the Garden

 

In the garden, the partridgeberry plant is ideal for tucking under established shrubs and perennials that provide shade from the afternoon sun. Not only is this a delightful miniature plant that will reward you with bright white blooms in the spring or early summer and striking red berries in the fall, but the dense foliage also helps to control weeds and conserve moisture in the perennial bed. Although it prefers moderately moist soil, partridgeberries require relatively little supplemental watering as the dense foliage serves as a living mulch to the soil, preventing moisture loss to evaporation.

 

It is a natural addition to woodland gardens and brings a splash of color all year long with its long-lasting white blooms in spring and summer and bright red berries throughout much of fall and winter. Berries soften and release their seeds by spring. While some seeds may sprout and grow, some do not germinate until the following year. If you choose to harvest the seeds with the hopes of starting new plants, be aware the seeds must be coldly stratified for four weeks at 40 degrees for them to germinate. Some seeds may not germinate at all. Partridge berries multiply and spread via rooting along the vine.
