Offered is a combo package of 5 Wintergreen Teaberry plants and 12 Partridge Berry vines. These have been collected today and are very fresh and healthy. Teaberry has many common names - Checkerberry, Boxberry and Mountain Tea. The plants are evergreen with shiny leaves and get pretty bell-shaped flowers in the summer followed by red berries in the fall. They range in height from 3" to 5" high and grow on shallow rhizomes. In fall and winter the leaves often turn purple in color or develop purple spots. if you prefer purple, please let me know and I will do my best to accomodate you! Teaberry is a great addition to your terrariums, fairy gardens on in a shade garden - giving you pretty white flowers and bright red berries. In a fairy garden, it looks like a little umbrella plant that your fairy will enjoy lounging under! Wintergreen Teaberry is a perennial plant and will spread slowly as new plants appear along the rhizome.
Partridge Berry is a perennial plant. Many gardeners consider Partridge Berry a must for winter gardens. During the cold days of winter, Partridge Berry is a treat to the eyes with it's deep, dark green leaves and scarlet berries. In terrariums or fairy gardens, Partridge Berry looks fabulous climbing up the the side of your little cottage, covered bridge, tiny trellis, etc. I have added these to many of my projects with great success. They randomly get red berries throughout the year which add a nice "pop" of color to your project.
As always, these are pesticide free. Email me with any questions you may have. I will combine shipping with other items. Please email me for a combined shipping quote if you are purchasing 2 or more items.
Cuttings arrived in great shape! Very healthy and very alive! And thank you, Eileen for accommodating my request for all wintergreen cuttings instead of the combo pack. I will be ordering more!

Beautiful; fat, happy and blooming! Just arrived today, will be going into my natives garden shortly. We've had several days of heavy rain, and it's a cloudy 67°(in northern Illinois on July 14 at 2pm lol!) so both these little gems and the rattlesnake plantain will be getting excellent starts instead of languishing in the heat lol
