The spotted wintergreen is a low-growing perennial in the wild. The leaves are forest green, with creamy white stripes cutting across their leaves. The perennial performs well in the wild but can also be in gardens. Before gathering the perennial in the wild, you must conduct prior research to know what the laws recommend about the perennial. Planting the perennial is easy because you only need to dig the rhizomes carefully from the rest of the colony and transplant them into your garden.

There Are 2 Types of Spotted Wintergreen

It is important to note that two different types of them are often confused as one: spotted and wintergreen. The perennial grows well in native North America and stretches across the Canadian border into Florida and some parts of the Mississippi River. Leaves characterize the perennial with a slightly wide appearance and serrated margins.

Spotted Wintergreen Reaches 3-6 Inches High

When mature, it grows between 3 to 6 inches high. It produces flowers during spring and early summer from stalks that blossom during the spring season. When transferring the perennial to a new location, it is highly recommended to consider digging it up with some compound of its surrounding soil because that will increase its chances of survival.

The Spotted Wintergreen Soil Types

Scientific research indicates that the plant's rooting system works as mycorrhiza associations, and the perennial tends to keep the existing soil conditions to grow. Protecting the perennial requires you to avoid invasive perennials because the perennial is vulnerable to tall growing perennials.

Spotted Wintergreen Does Great In Woodland Gardens

Spotted wintergreen, also known as Pipsissewa, is perfect for woodland and ground cover and will leave your garden looking great. When developing the perennial, ensure your soil is relatively moist because it cannot survive in dry soil. The perennial is known to survive for many years in the wild with little human attention.
