Gaultheria procumbens is a dense evergreen, creeping North American shrub which makes an eye-catching carpet of dark green, red tinted and metallic foliage in winter, complementing its red berries, which nestle among the leaves. It's easy to grow and makes an attractive edging plant for informal paths and wild garden beds. The Royal Horticultural Society has given it its prestigious Award of Garden Merit (AGM).
Grow Gaultheria procumbens in moist but well-drained, acidic soil in full sun to partial shade. The creeping and suckering stems are easily controlled by chopping through them with a spade once a year.
