Description

The 'Wintergreen' plant is considered the plant that "came in from the cold" as it’s generally grown outdoors. Over the years it has moved up the holiday charts as a popular plant for holiday décor, bearing a striking resemblance to Christmas holly. This plant displays shiny leaves and produces blossoms that look like tiny, dangling bells. Wintergreen flowers ultimately produce bright Christmas-red berries. After the holidays, this plant continues to provide merriment by producing berries all season long!  *Available in 4 to 4.5-inch nursery pot*
