Winter Splash™ Wintergreen
Gaultheria procumbens 'Winter Splash'™
Brighten up a shady alcove with a colorful, one-of-a-kind wintergreen. This first-ever variegated wintergreen will brighten your mood with its showy white-and-green variegated, glossy green leaves that take on a glowing pink color with autumn frosts, accompanied by bright red wintergreen-flavored berries that persist well into winter. Plant it in containers with a holiday theme, or in the landscape as a small space groundcover to brighten up the winter drearies. Fantastic in pots flanking a doorway! A spectacular edible ornamental.
Prefers an acidic, moist but well draining soil with plenty of organic matter. Evergreen.
