Mitchella repens (Partridgeberry) [15 Seeds]


Germination Information: Honestly, the easiest way to get partridgeberry started in your garden is to buy plants, if you can find them. I recommend the seeds only for gardeners who have experience with challenging seeds, as well as a good bit of patience. It seems that the easiest approach is to sow (barely covered) in fall and set the pot outdoors for the winter. Some of the seeds may germinate the first spring, but others may wait until the second spring, so don’t discard the pot until it’s been through at least 2 full years.

Partridgeberry (Mitchella repens) is a diminutive, ground-hugging, woodland perennial with rounded, evergreen leaves. Small, pink-tinged white flowers appear in pairs in late spring to early summer, developing into rounded, red fruits that linger through the winter. The trailing stems can root along their length, eventually forming an attractive groundcover where there is not a lot of competition from taller perennials. Partridgeberry is native to eastern and central North America. These seeds are from wild plants growing here in Bucks County, PA.  Partial to full shade. Perennial; Zones 3 to 8.

Collected in late August and early September 2023. At least 15 seeds. PA ecotype. Shipping to US addresses only.
