Gaultheria mucronata 'Alba'
Gaultheria mucronata 'Alba'

This is a hardy, evergreen shrub which bears small, pinkish-white, bell-shaped flowers between May and June. These are produced above glossy, light to mid- green leaves which take on an attractive bronze tint in the winter.
The flowers are followed by large, pure white fruits which help to provide colour and interest well into autumn, winter and even the following spring. It prefers a loamy, acidic soil but can also tolerate swampy conditions.
In order for this variety to produce berries it must be planted near to a male Gaultheria (Gaultheria Mucronata)
