Caption: Wintergreen or Eastern Teaberry (Gaultheria procumbens). Found in poor acidic soils in woods and clearings this plant keeps its leaves year round. This plant is found throughout North America. The oval shaped leaves are dark green in colour and appear to be hard and brittle. The leaves have an obscure tooth pattern and when broken there is an unmistakable wintergreen aroma and taste. The pollinated flower turns into a bright red berry, also bearing the wintergreen flavor. This plant will reach heights of 2 - 6 inches. Photographed in Maine.
