Gaultheria procumbens (Partridge Berry)

Gaultheria procumbens (Partridge Berry)

OUT OF STOCK
Gaultheria procumbens, also known as the partridge berry or checkerberry, is a dwarf evergreen shrub which grows to a maximum height of just 30cm. From June to August it produces fragrant and dainty white bell-shaped flowers often blushed pink with yellow veining. After flowering, gorgeous bright pink-red berries are produced in abundance, contrasting against the shiny deep green foliage. This shrub is ideal for attracting birds to the garden - and with winter around the corner they'll appreciat e it more than ever. We'd recommend planting Gaultheria procumbens in a shaded or partially shaded spot in the border or rockery. 9cm pot grown plants supplied.
