Description

Wintergreen Plant - Gaultheria procumbens For Sale Affordable Grower Direct Prices Tennessee Wholesale Nursery

Wintergreen plants is a spreading groundcover native to the eastern areas of North America. The plant can be used as an ornamental groundcover but may not be the best as an underfoot groundcover because of the noticeable red berries it produces, as well as the mature height of the plant. The seeds are treated as ornamental, though some sources may consider them edible. While this is the plant that gave rise to the wintergreen flavor, uses such as brewing tea from the plant is not a good idea. It has red berries in the fall and winter, making it a Christmas-oriented plant. It's hardy in U.S. Department of Agriculture Zones 3-8.

Single plants are usually and no more than 3 feet in width - it often has a smaller spread than that. It is evergreen, with the leaves changing color from green to reddish as the weather gets colder. Summer-blooming flowers are white, while the small leaves tend to cluster together. Soil should be moist but well-draining; the plant spreads as its rhizomes travel underground.

Affordable Wintergreen For Every Landscape

The plant grows at a reasonable rate, so if you line paths with it, keep an eye on rogue stems that creep onto the pathway. Any pruning should be done after the flowers have opened up, and surrounding the plant with mulch will protect the rhizomes in colder weather. The leaves, which can grow to a couple of inches long, and the berries make otherwise bare winter gardens look much more lively. The slightly acidic soil is best; if you are also planting blueberries, wintergreen plant is an excellent companion in that garden bed.

Wintergreen Plant 

The wintergreen 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 wintergreen 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.
