(Boxberry, Chilean Pernettya, Chilean Wintergreen, Prickly Heath)

The glossy foliage of prickly heath is a delicious foil for the white flowers and crops of tiny white to violet-purple berries that persist into winter. A compact, spreading broadleaf evergreen shrub, it suckers from its roots, sprouting new stems nearby to form a gentle thicket. It's a native of northern Chile and Argentina.

Glossy green leaves are beautiful to look at and are tapering ovals with sharp points and notched teeth. In late spring, small white to light pink flowers appear that are...

(Eastern Teaberry, Spreading Wintergreen)

A close relative to blueberries and cranberries, spreading wintergreen is very hardy little evergreen, semi-woody groundcover adapted to the organic, acid soils of the forest floors of eastern North America. It is the source of the favorite chewing gum flavor, wintergreen, and its leaves offer the same cool taste if chewed.

This is a very low-growing plant that slowly creeps by rhizomes to form neat, non-aggressive mats of dark green, leathery, oval-shaped foliage. In winter, the leaves turn...

(Salal)

Few evergreen shrubs solve as many problems for woodland home sites surrounded by excessive shade and clay-rich soils. Salal is a Pacific Coast native, growing in the understory of woodlands from California north to Washington and over a larger part of Alaska. It adapts well to the long dry season of California and yet stands just as well in the rain soaked Seattle woods, proving its adaptability.

Large leathery, emerald leaves give a truly lush appearance to these shrubs. They flower in early...

(Hybrid Wintergreen)

Deep green glossy leaves and thousands of tiny white, bell-like flowers and purplish berries makes the Wisley gaultheria a fine shrubby groundcover. This hybrid is a cross between salal (Gaultheria shallon) and prickly heath (Gaultheria mucronata) found by Brian Mulligan at the Royal Horticultural Society's garden at Wisley, England. This initial plant was named as cultivar 'Wisley Pearl'. Spontaneous hybrids occur between these two species today, giving rise to many ornamental...

This hybrid is a cross between salal (Gaultheria shallon) and prickly heath (Gaultheria mucronata) found by Brian Mulligan at Royal Horticultural Society garden at Wisley, England. Spontaneous hybrids occur between these two species today, giving rise to many ornamental cultivars, including 'Pink Pixie'.
