My Bit of Heaven
Genus starting with:
Searching Genus for MITCHELLA
A genus of two evergreen, trailing plants native to North America and Japan.
June to July
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.
Cold treatment required.
