Berry Cascade™ Wintergreen

Description
Year-Round Color!
Berries run the entire length of the stem. Don't want to quote somebody directly but this makes it cascade – that's how it got it's name. An East-coast native plant, this wintergreen shrub variety grows to only 6" tall with a 12" wide spread, making it ideal as a ground cover. In springtime, Berry Cascade™ produces tons of small white flowers amid glossy, mid-green foliage. From fall to winter, the leaves turn shades of red and deep burgundy and feature brilliant red-orange berries that have a sweet, minty flavor and cover the plant from fall to spring. The foliage and berries look fantastic in seasonal greenery and Holiday floral arrangements. Plant in partially shaded sites for best results. Prefers moist, acidic, well-drained soil. Exhibits good disease and pest resistance, and is easy to grow and maintain. Hardy in Zones 3-9.
