Shipping calculated at checkout.

Phonetic: my-CHEL-luh REE-penz

At only two inches tall Partridge Berry is an ideal ground cover for those wishing to fill undisturbed shady locations. It prefers a moist, well-drained soil but once established is partially drought resistant.  It produces a red fruit, that while edible, is mostly flavorless.  These fruits can last through the season adding a nice dash of color to the winter landscape.
