Gaultheria procumbens 'Cherry Berries'

Nature's wintergreen lifesavers! This new cultivar is loaded with very large, nickel-size, showy red, tasty berries. The berries can be made into tea, eaten raw, mixed into fresh fruit salad or used in a refreshing ice cream. The leaves can be used as a minty tea. 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

The wintergreen arrived in great shape. They are pretty hardy travelers, it seems. I bought them to fill in as a ground cover.

I love the confidence knowing that any tree or barefoot plant will thrive.

Winter berries!

Well I am just in love with these small bushes. I am now on my 4th multi-plant order for these. Not only do they look cute, with dark glossy leaves, the leaves and the berries are a trip when you taste them. It’s like root beer concentrate in your mouth - at least to me - and nice breath thereafter. I gifted a few to family and they just love them too. Of course they look fabulous among the rocks by my small retaining wall too.

This one is doing very well in its new location. Thanks for great packaging and a high quality little shrub.
