Gallivanting throughout the forests of Canada and the northern half of North America, this stylish herbaceous subshrub looks a bit like Cornus florida, though its luminous flowers and dark greenery are much smaller. The lush, whorled, deeply veined leaves, which sprout from spreading rhizomes, sculpt a low growing ground cover adorned with showy, upfacing, butterfly-friendly flowers, each defined by 4 oval-shaped, white bracts plus a tiny, central greenish yellow umbel. Bronzy-red fall color and ornamental, bright red berry-like fruit, eaten by birds and gardeners alike, offer added appeal. Second-to-none for naturalizing or edging wooded pathways, Bunchberry spurns deer and rabbits, detests hot, humid weather and enjoys dappled shade as well as slightly acidic, adequately moist soil.
Size: 6" – 8" high x 12" – 2' 0" wide.
Hardy to zone 2.
