This fascinating groundcover is native to moist forests, bogs and streambanks from Greenland and Alaska to the mountains of California and Virginia. A patch in bloom appears like a Flowering Dogwood shrub that has been buried to its outermost twigs. The rhizomes creep by underground stolons, constantly sending up stems to form lovely dense patches. Each stem has 2 to 3 sets of overlapping, opposite leaves at its tip. From the center of this group emerges a small knot of yellow or green flowers in late spring to early summer surrounded by four white bracts. The flowers eventually develop into a bunch of striking scarlet berries, each containing a hard seed. Bunchberries thrive in moist, acidic soil and a cool location.
