Glossy green and red leaves of wintergreen release the tell-tale scent when crushed. This rhizomatous shrublet, native to N.E. America produces pretty urn-shaped flowers of white or pink. Later, edible aromatic red berries develop, often persisting through winter and into spring. Taste a berry and you'll think you just brushed your teeth. 6'' tall by 3' wide. A handsome, tough, low evergreen groundcover.

Minimum temperature: -30° F
