Description: This is a tidy crisp plant with a single white bloom that becomes a cluster of bright red berries by early summer. Sometimes the foliage will turn a deep burgundy as the nights become cooler. Bunchberries make a wonderful ground-cover and are very showy when planted in groups. They prefer a moist shady area but will tolerant more sun as long as the moisture is there. Birds are fond of Bunchberries.

Found in Nature: These plants are usually found growing in coniferous forests or on moist shaded hillsides.

Distribution: Common in Wooded Areas - Prairies, Foothills and Rocky Mountains

Notes: Available as larger potted stock - pick up only.
