Patridgeberry (Mitchella repens) is a shade-loving evergreen ground cover trailing up to 12 feet long. It grows slowly, and is best to plant around other non-competitive plants. Oval glossy dark green leaves grow in pairs along the stems. White flowers with some pink appear in pairs in spring on the stem ends. Attractive red berries that stand out in the winter time. The berries are edible but not very tasteful. Does well under trees, alongside rock edges, ponds and border gardens where the soil stays consistently moist.
