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.

Wintergreen berries ripen in waves, starting in late August 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.
