OTHER: Creeping Wintergreen is indeed an evergreen groundcover as the name suggests. It is native to the US & Canada, and is listed as endangered in Illinois. Wintergreen has a wonderful fragrance. Its leaves are used to make tea & the leaf oil is used in muscle rubs. The berries have the texture of an apple with a wintergreen taste. Because of this, they are often used for flavoring gums, toothpastes, breath mints, and much much more.

A seller that really cares about customer satisfaction~ all my items arrived quickly and well-packaged. This was my second order from this seller, and I'm happy that I've found a great go-to seed source!

Timely arrival. Was a little bummed that the seeds had to stratify for 90 days, as I had planters ready with soil. But the seller included a nice big package of cosmos seeds as a bonus, so I could play in the dirt. The cosmos have an amazing germination rate. I trust the wintergreen seeds will have the same.
