Wintergreen  (Gaultheria procumbens) Wintergreen (as the name implies) is an attractive evergreen groundcover with bright green foliage that is lustrous, leathery and aromatic all winter long. It requires the same acidic soil conditions as blueberries do. An ideal site for wintergreen is beneath evergreen trees, as it will thrive in full or part shade. The dainty, white, bell-shaped flowers of early summer are followed by edible berries which can hang on the plant all winter. The leaves are often used for flavouring. They can also be brewed for tea which is beneficial in cases of rheumatism, inflammation and headaches. As a bonus, Wintergreen plants are both deer and rabbit resistant. Potted
