Enchanting iridescent white berries grace a splendid new variety of wintergreen (Gaultheria procumbens) at Squak Mt. Nursery. ‘Peppermint Pearl’ features glossy, dark green foliage that hugs the edge of a rockery, border edge or container. Brilliant white flowers pop up in summer, adding bright cheer to shady areas. Then as fall approaches gorgeous pure white berries cover the plant, reminding us of a string of pearls on a necklace. The meandering, cooler months of winter will transform this plant once again as the berries mature to pink.
Try tucking pots of ‘Peppermint Pearl’ alongside glittery décor into your tablescape when hosting a holiday party. Planted permanently outside, wintergreen makes a lovely ground cover in part sun to full shade conditions. Cold hardy and deer resistant, there are many great reasons to add wintergreen to your garden. Visit Squak Mt today to select ‘Peppermint Pearl’, or traditional wintergreen varieties with bright red berries, as you celebrate the season.
