Product Description

Spotted Wintergreen - Chimaphila maculata


The Spotted Wintergreen is a rare sight, and therefore a welcome addition to any landscaping project. This plant is a somewhat understated one, so it is perfect for planting with other greenery around it. However, it will catch any onlooker's eye with its beautiful coloring and delicate blooms. It will thrive in warm conditions and is often used underneath larger shrubs to add color, interest, and variance. The leaves at the base of the plant are a luscious dark green, with a light-colored variation of light green and white through the center of the leaves. In the center of the leaf cluster, a thin stem shoots up to showcase the creamy white, elegant flowers. The gentle flowers have a slight droop to them, adding to the delicate softness of the overall plant.

The Spotted Wintergreen is native to several areas in the United States.

It requires very well-drained soil, and it prefers a sandy substrate underneath. This plant also has a long history of being used for healing purposes. These purposes include both common ailments, like basic first aid for abrasions and wounds, and also for some more severe illnesses, such as arthritic conditions and urinary tract issues. Many customers enjoy having specific plants in the garden at hand to use medicinally.
For those looking for year-round color in their landscaping project, the Chimaphila maculata is a perfect plant to include due to its evergreen qualities. It will stay relatively small, eliminating the need for pruning or cutting back each year. Therefore, it is relatively low maintenance and hearty. It can often grow in areas with mountains and heavily wooded areas. This plant grows best in zones 6-7.

The Spotted Wintergreen is ideal for those wanting uniquely new foliage that is also relatively low maintenance.

    Childhood memories of walks in the woods

    Sep 28, 2023 Reviewer: Marjorie Wolson

    I live in Northern Virginia, near the Potomac River and was thrilled to find a nursery that had the wide variety of native plants that I was used to seeing in the woods around our home as a child. My order arrived in good condition in today's mail. I have planted them all in areas similar to where I remember them growing long ago. I really appreciate Wildflower Native Plant Nursery shipping my order in the correct season for planting. I have high hopes for a beautiful spring!

    Got a rhizome this time and planted it promptly. It was solid and healthy looking and I can't wait to see it sprout!

    Cute little plant

    May 30, 2022 Reviewer: SK

    Plant was a little dry on arrival but I gave it some water after planting and it perked right up. Doing well so far.
