Gaultheria procumbens


Availability : Available

Description :

Teaberry, Canada tea, checkerberry, boxberry, or American wintergreen

This little plant is really quite seductive with its:

  • dark, shiny evergreen foliage,
  • white summer flowering like heather, as Gaultheria procumbens belongs to the Ericaceae family;
  • abundant fruit of little red edible berries from late autumn to the end of winter;
  • hardiness and ease of cultivation in partial shade in acid to neutral soil.

Gaultheria procumbens is a useful ground cover for shady areas, which will contentedly and whimsically spread under rhododendrons, camellias and azaleas in an ericaceous bed.

Height: 15 cm. Hardiness: -20°C. 3 plants / m². Planting distance: 60 cm. Teaberry has many medicinal properties.
