Description

An excellent ornamental for winter holidays and container specimens. The bright red wintergreen-scented berries with glossy green leaves. Native to northeastern North America from Newfoundland west to southeastern Manitoba, and south to Alabama.

G. procumbens is a small, low-growing shrub, typically reaching 15 cm (6") tall. The leaves are evergreen with a distinct oil of wintergreen scent.

The flowers are pendulous, with a white, sometimes pink-tinged, and bell-shaped.

The plant is a calcifuge, favoring acidic soil, in pine or hardwood forests, although it generally produces fruit only in sunnier areas.

This plant was received the Award of Garden Merit (A.G.M.) from the Royal Horticultural Society.

Type: Low-growing shrub

Hardiness zones: 3-5

Height: 15cm, 6"

Location: Sun

Germination: Start these seeds indoors right away for best germination rates. Your planting container should have holes in the bottom for excess water to drain. Sow the seeds just under the surface of a seed-start mix, and water in. Leave them at room temperature for 4 weeks. This helps break the phytohormones which inhibit germination. They will not grow yet. Then a cooling period is required. Cover them with plastic and place in a fridge for 80 days. Be sure they stay moist. After the cold-moist stratification period they are then brought back to a cool room (15-18C, 59-68F) for them to germinate. Germination is generally 30-60 days after the warming period, though some can take longer.
