Partridge Berry, also known as Mitchella repens, is a creeping prostrate herbaceous shrub found in Japan and eastern North America. It is an evergreen plant that grows in vines around 6 to 12 inches, and has a vegetation reproduction, with plants having spreading colonies. Partridge Berry doesn't climb but lays on the ground. During the late spring and summer, small flowers will bloom on the vines. When the ovaries of two of these flowers fuse, the result is a bright red berry. The Partridge Berry is cultivated primarily for its bright green foliage and ornamental red berries. The berries have no taste but are edible. This plant is considered popular with gardeners during the winter season. The look of its green leaves and berries makes for good decorations.

Flower Form: The flowers on this low-growing evergreen vine are fragrant, white and more often than not bloom in pairs. Occasional red, edible fruit appears when the season is right. The white flowers and red fruit are of a winter interest because the combination of colors sticks out beautifully against the dark, bland colors of the winter season. Because this vine is considered a hugger, it wonderfully takes the shape of mats while growing. These vines are great for decorating beneath shrubs in home gardens and to add pops of color in rock gardens.
