Partridge Berry, A Plant of Many Names

If you are researching shade garden plants, you might also find partridgeberry listed under these names:

  • Squaw berry
  • Two-eyed berry
  • Running fox
  • Partridge berry (separated into two words)

These all refer to the same plant, Mitchella repens. Whatever name you may call it, you will enjoy the rich hues of the leaves and the clustered berries.

Partridgeberry is a woodland creeper that forms mat-like whorls along the forest floor. Its stems are smooth near the growing tip and have the sparsest of "hairs."

As the stems age, they spread by reproducing. They grow offshoots that emerge singly or in pairs from nodes below the previous year's fruit. After reproduction, branch stems emerge.

The partridge berry plant produces small, fragrant, white flowers in late spring and summer. After the blooms finish, elongated red berries appear. Partridgeberry fruit is edible, so harvest the berries to make jam or jelly.

Partridgeberry is native to North America.

It grows in forest habitats from New England, sweeping across to the Great Lakes region and as far south as Florida and Texas.

Partridgeberry is a trailing, evergreen vine. Its typical leaves are just under an inch long and may present solid green leaves or variegated white lines. A slender but sturdy stem supports the leaves and berries.

Because it is an evergreen plant, this ground cover is famous in pots and decorative planters. Gardeners and home decorators enjoy using Mitchella repens stems and berries for winter wreath making and other holiday decor. The color contrast of the red berries and green leaves makes a classic combination that instantly makes you think of making merry.

Appear to be growing OK, will take a while for them to get going, I think.

Mitchella Repens native groundcover

Ordered three bare root plants, and received them within a few days, very fresh bare roots and Michella Repens is a groundcover, the bare roots I received still had a few leaves on each bare root, and one with a ripe red berry, so this was a fun one to plant in winter. Dense roots I watered daily as directed, and had one good rain so they have settled in very well. I planted a week before the extreme cold of 2022, mine were covered by oak leaves during the icy wind so I have hope they survived.

So excited to see these plants grow. They were in excellent condition on arrival. Got them in the ground the following day and can already see them flourishing .

Mitchella Repens (Partridgeberry)

I love my lil plants so much and after being planted only 4 days ago, they are doing wonderfully. We deal with a lot of erosion due to our home being behind a large pond and steep slope so I am trying to counter this issue. The description of the plant indicated that it is slow-growing but a great groundcover for this purpose but I'm giving it a chance. Either way, it will be beautiful out here year round and I'm looking forward to seeing the show! Oh.......by the way........TN Wholsale Nursery is where you should be buying ALL your plants. These folks really are the very best and I love them very much.
