MITCHELLA(PARTRIDGE BERRY)Family: RUBIACEAE
A genus of two evergreen, trailing plants native to North America and Japan.

MITCHELLA repensJune to July2344
Partridgeberry10-30cm (Prostrate)  Zone: 3
Native to most of eastern North America and perhaps my favorite native groundcover. Patridgeberry grows in moist to dry woods and on rocky outcrops in neutral to acid soil and is a beautiful, delicate, creeping plant with shiny, opposite leaves having a distinctive central white vein. The prostrate stems to 30cm run along the ground in a vine like fashion, rooting at various points and often carpeting an area. Delicate and fragrant flowers are white to light pink, arranged in joined pairs at the end of the creeping stem. These two flowers become fused together to form a solitary, bright red berry, which will stay on the vine until after the blooms appear the following season. Seed wild collected in Ontario.
Germination Instructions: Cold treatment required.

It is often short-lived in gardens, but should re-seed to perpetuate itself. Small yellow, two-lipped flowers, spotted purple appear in the upper leaf axils and stem ends in tiered clusters, each cluster resting on a flamboyant palette of pink to lavender leafy bracts. The toothed, aromatic, oblong leaves may be used in teas. Long summer bloom period.

MONOTROPA

MONOTROPA hypopithysSummer to Fall2359
Pinesap10-35cm  Zone: 4
Native to temperate regions of the Northern Hemisphere, but generally scarce or rare, and is endangered in many areas. Unlike most plants, it does not contain chlorophyll; being myco-heterotroph, getting is food through parasitism upon fungi rather than photosynthesis. Thus it is capable of living in very dark conditions, such as the floor of a deep forest, because it does not need any sunlight. It grows with a single unbranched stem; all parts of the plant pale yellowish-white to reddish-tinged. The leaves are reduced to scales, which cover most of the stem. Flowers are pendulous, produced in a cluster at the apex of the stem. This is a plant for the collector, and not easy to propagate. Wild collected in Ontario.
Germination Instructions: The seeds of this plant apparently require a fungal associate to germinate-and it is suggested that you will need to spread the seed on a suitable forest site where pines exist (and the fungus would likely be present).
 $4.50   

MONOTROPA unifloraLate Summer2360
Indian Pipe10-30cm  Zone: 1/2
Native to Asia, North America and northern South America; generally scarce or rare across it's range. Indian pipe, has no chlorophyll, so it cannot obtain energy from sunlight. Instead, it gets nutrients from organic matter in the soil. The stems are clothed with small scale-leaves and as its species name suggests, and unlike the related M. hypopitys, the stems bear only a single flower. Like most myco-heterotrophic plants, M. uniflora associates with a small range of fungal hosts and therefore it's propagation is challenging. Wild collected in Ontario.
Germination Instructions: The seeds of this plant apparently require a fungal associate to germinate-and it is suggested that you will need to spread the seed on a suitable forest site where pines exist (and the fungus would likely be present).
