Tn Nursery Reviews — Spotted Wintergreen Plants

My spotted wintergreen plants did exactly what you said they would do: Go dormant and come up the following spring. They all came up and I think I may have gotten more than what I ordered. It’s takes 4 months to figure this out but I wanted to say “thank you Tn”.

Spotted Wintergreen, otherwise known as Chimphila maculata, is a plant most visible during the autumn and winter seasons, as its name implies. Wintergreen blooms throughout the summertime, indicating that it reached the midpoint of its lifecycle. Spotted Wintergreen thrives best in more acidic soils with a sandy consistency. A dry, arid environment is where this plant thrives best. This type of soil can be created with the addition of manure and compost that raise pH levels and slow and regulate plant moisture. Planting in shady areas is highly recommended for this plant to reach its full potential.

Spotted Wintergreen is a small plant with broad green leaves. During the blooming process, it sports pink and white flowers before their eventual maturity. The height of a mature specimen can range anywhere between 6–10 inches. It is a low-maintenance plant that does not require pruning nor extra upkeep, so that it can be an ideal plant for a beginning gardener. While the plant can be located in dozens of states, it is considered endangered in some Canadian states, such as Ontario. As a result, there are some conservation efforts underway to protect such a vital flora. It is most famously used and grown for medicinal purposes. Spotted Wintergreen contains antiseptic properties for urinary and cystic issues. Spotted Wintergreen’s capabilities do not stop there, and it is also antibacterial. Studies have shown that these leafy greens are also quite effective for diuretic treatments and have their uses when treating inflammation and arthritis. To use Spotted Wintergreen medicinally, one must brew its leaves into an herbal tea to reap the benefits.

Spotted Wintergreen is also a deterrent to grazing predators such as deer and therefore does not have any issues in that regard. Speaking of fauna, bees are the primary pollinator of Spotted Wintergreen and thus play a crucial role in its conservation. Many environmentalists credit bees for preventing the extinction of Spotted Evergreen in North America despite its threatened status in some parts of the continent.
