Partridge Berry (Mitchella repens), otherwise known as twinberry or pigeon plum, is a creeping perennial known for its beautiful pairs of white, cruciferous flowers and small red berries. The fruit that the plant produces is edible and, as the name suggests, is regularly eaten by partridges and other birds and animals. While the berries have relatively little flavor, they are reported to have some health benefits and have been used in Native American medicine.

How To Grow Partridge Berry 

 It is a native to the eastern United States and Canada, and is most commonly found within forests, growing in places with limited sunlight or even in complete shade. The flowers tend to form around early spring or summer and the fruit are known to last through the colder months into the following spring. Because of its hardiness in the cold and capacity to grow in shady areas, it is a perfect plant to grow in the winter. Propagating the plant, however, can be very difficult to do from seed, so most gardeners recommend using plants that have already been established. 

Benefits Of Planting Partridge Berry 

 The plant grows low to the ground, generally reaching no taller than 2 inches, and grows well as a groundcover in shaded areas. It also produces vines that will creep along the ground as it grows but will not climb. The leaves of the plant are rounded and grow to produce thick matts of a beautiful deep green. Once established, it needs relatively little maintenance, although it does need moisture to survive and can be sensitive to drought. 

The Beautiful Colors Of Partridge Berry 

 The beautiful colors of Partridge Berry and its capacity to grow through the winter makes it a must have for those interested in keeping their yard or garden beautiful and productive year round. Whether grown for the berries, or simply for aesthetics, or as a means of filling a shady area, it is a wonderful addition to any landscape.

Great plants as described

The plants received were robust and with healthy roots. These are bare root cuttings as described not plants in a pot. I would order from this business again as these were great plants.
