Open your plants and inspect the same day received. We offer 3 days to report any problems with your order. Bare root plants need to be planted within 2-3 days of receipt unless weather prohibits. Store in a cool place and keep roots moist and covered with plastic until they can be planted. Water daily for the first week after planting.

Description

Wintergreen Plant is Lovely Evergreen Ground Cover  

 It sports small, green, waxy leaves whose arrangement might bring a softer holly plant to mind. Not really true to its name, wintergreen does not stay green through winter, but rather turns a bronze or reddish color when the temperatures drop. It forms a glossy mat of growth that reaches only about six to eight inches in height, producing pale little flowers in the summer that lead to edible, red berries in the autumn.
The berries are bird-friendly as well, and may make a nice addition for those who want to attract birds to their yards. 
 

Wintergreen is Perfect for the Shaded or Partially Sunny Landscape


Wintergreen tolerates a broad growing range, with optimal conditions found in growing zones 3 to 8 (roughly lower Canada to northern Alabama), although the best soil conditions are found west of the Mississippi. Wintergreen loves moist, acidic soil, and does not do well in either arid or boggy conditions. It’s affinity for acidic soil also makes it growable in areas where other plants cannot, such as under the shade of pine trees. Keep the soil evenly watered, about once per week depending on where you live. 

Wintergreen produces an oil used for teas, candy, and food

Wintergreen produces a minty oil that was used long ago for teas, candy, and food, and continues to be popular with modern day herbalists. It spreads in a creeping fashion, casting small stems just below the surface of the soil, and most of the mats reach a maximum spread of about three feet in width. This is an excellent ground cover for replacing grass, since it requires little maintenance, but be aware that it should be planted only where no foot traffic will disturb it, and may require some acidification of the soil prior to planting. Alternately, wintergreen can be successfully grown in a pot for use on a terrace or balcony space.
