Partridge Berry - Mitchella repens

Herbaceous evergreen perennial ranging from 2 inches tall but spreading up to 1 foot, Partridge Berry is a small ground-creeping vine that flowers in spring and produces red berries in fall. The flowers attract insects (the number one source of wild bird food), while the berries are eaten by birds, especially members of the thrush family, such as: Veery, American Robin, and Hermit Thrush. Partridge Berry is a good option for woodland gardens since it can tolerate heavy shade.
