Gaultheria procumbens 'Berry Cascade'

Unlike most Gaultheria cultivars, the berries of Berry Cascade ™ grow the entire length of the stem, forming a charming, cascade effect, and the fall and winter foliage is a beautiful orange and red, brighter than regular wintergreen. Berries can be made into tea, eaten raw, used to flavor simple syrup or make a refreshing ice cream. Leaves can be used for soothing teas. Both leaves and fruit taste like wintergreen lifesavers.

Self-fertile wintergreen ripens berries in waves, starting in late summer until late winter. They are a creeping native of the eastern United States and will spread outward 12 inches or more. Plant 12 inches apart, in partial or full shade. Needs a loose, acidic soil with high organic matter content. It grows to about 6 inches tall and makes a great edible evergreen groundcover. Hardy in USDA Zones 3-9.

Size: 1 Qt Pot

QUESTIONS & ANSWERS

Ask a Question
  • Do deer like it? Is there a ground cover that deer do not like that will not be devastated?

    Deer may or may not like it depending on the herd and the season. Deer are experimental browsing animals with varying tastes. It cannot be said any plant is fully "deer resistant".
