Description How to Grow More Info Delivery

Gaultheria is the ideal evergreen plant for difficult areas in the garden. These low-growing plants will thrive in a shady corner. Plants can actually help with weed problems in the garden, thanks to their thick, almost impenetrable growth habit. An ideal ground covering plant.

Gaultheria procumbens has rounded, simple leaves, which are tough and leathery, and turn a glorious red by October, giving fantastic autumn colour in the garden. The small, bell-shaped flowers are followed by red berries too, giving vital food to birds and wildlife.

Gaultheria is a low maintenance plant, which is quick growing and is an excellent ground cover plant for shady gardens. Plants are also suitable for planting on sloping ground. Alternatively, plant into patio containers and place one either side of the front door over the Christmas period for an attractive festive display, the perfect Christmas gift. Height: 15cm (6"). Spread 100cm (39").

Flowering Months
Gaultheria procumbens will require very little pruning, but you can trim plants as required, to keep them neat and in good shape. Pruning should be done carefully with secateurs rather than shears, and can be done at any time of year. Caution: harmful if eaten.
Plant Gaultheria procumbens into garden borders in any moist, well drained garden soil, in full shade or part shade. Alternatively grow Gaultheria plants in patio containers using a soil based compost such as John Innes No.3. Feed and water plants regularly until fully established.
