Looking to add some greenery to your landscape? Our Wintergreen seeds are perfect for shady areas with acidic soil. With a little patience, you can grow a beautiful ground cover that's perfect for adding some color and life to your outdoor space year-round.
This versatile plant produces bell-shaped flowers in the summer and red berries in the fall and winter. Best of all, it's easy to care for and drought tolerant. As a medicinal herb, wintergreen contains methyl salicylate, a medicine related to aspirin, and has been used in medicine for centuries. Today, it is still used in some herbal medicines.
Wintergreen ground cover seeds germinate best after a cold treatment. It is recommended to refrigerate Wintergreen seeds 4 - 10 weeks as the cold temperature helps to break the dormancy of the seed. Remove the ground cover seeds from the refrigerator and sow them directly in a prepared seedbed. Creeping Wintergreen plants prefer somewhat acidic soil and soil that has lots of organic matter worked in.
