Small green color with bright red berries
The berries are bright and really stand out. I am finding that the squirrels and birds love them.
Only downfall is that the deer wont leave my plants alone, they love the berries.
This was purchased as a gift and arrived in good condition, rather quickly. I was happy with the initial plant, but have only grown more impressed with it, though it has yet to bloom.

Squaw Vine Plant - Conopholis Americana
A unique plant that looks like a pinecone, squawroot grows near oak trees, gathering nutrients from its roots for three years. In the fourth year, it sends up a white stalk with brown scales which can reach a foot in height. Tubular flowers show in summer. It is indifferent to levels of light and needs soil that is well-drained and relatively loose.
'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.
Cohosh is native to the eastern half of North America and has traditionally been used as an herbal treatment for various ailments. The binomial name is Mitchella repens. The Partridgeberry has shiny green leaves that produce tiny trumpet-shaped flowers with white petals. Partridgeberry has berries that grow bright red. The Partridgeberry ripens between July and October, and only a small amount of seeds produce. The blooming season for this berry is during the summer months. The Partridgeberry consist mainly of foliage. This type of grain is not highly recommended for the garden or home use, but some gardeners use this plant for a year-round kind of decoration for their landscape. Squaw Vine Plant is eaten by several species of birds, foxes, mice, and skunks. The Partridgeberry goes by several names: two-eyed berry, squawvine, twinflower, teaberry, running box, etc., to name few. Also, this plant is edible, but it is not very tasty, it is very bland. These berries are found in northern and southern parts of the USA. The leading growers of this type of seed are Nova Scotia and Florida.
