Description

Patridgeberry (Mitchella repens) is a shade-loving shrub! It’s low growing and acts more like a ground cover, trailing up to 12 feet. It grows slowly, and is best to plant around other non-competitive plants. Attractive red berries that stand out in the winter time; berries are edible but not very tasteful. Does well under tees, alongside rock edges, ponds and border gardens where the soil stays consistently moist.
