This Gaultheria Berry Cascade™ evergreen perennial is attractive all year round. New growth of spring emerges orange red and slowly turns deep green in summer as the bush blooms in delicate, waxy, bell-like white flowers, followed by the berries that accompany the foliage through winter. The foliage has the aroma of wintergreen and is pest and disease resistant.

Gaultheria Berry Cascade™ is cold hardy and easy to grow. It prefers partial shade and acidic, well-drained soil that is rich in organic matter. Its low, spreading habit, growing up to 10 inches tall and 3 feet wide, makes it an excellent groundcover.
