Peppermint Pearl Wintergreen is a beautiful, compact, creeping, evergreen ground cover. This plant is recognized for its enchanting, round, white berries that look like pearls, and cascade in drooping clusters. These berries are edible and have a wintergreen/mint/candy cane flavour, commonly used in holiday candies and baked goods.

Peppermint Pearl Cascade also features tiny, fragrant, pinkish white, bell-shaped flowers in early to mid summer. The lush, evergreen foliage is dark green and shiny, adding year-round colour to the garden.

Perfect as shady ground cover, border, or in a planter. Grows best in moist, acidic, and organically rich soil with partial to full shade.
