BEST OF THE BUNCH; Gardens.
A low, spreading evergreen with underground stems and glossy, dark green leaves - which smell of wintergreen when crushed - it grows to around 15cmx1m (6inx3ft), producing bright red gobstopper-like berries. It produces clusters of insignificant small white flowers earlier in the season. Wintergreen is also excellent for providing ground cover in damp woodland or shady borders.
