Galax urceolata

Wandflower, Wandplant, Beetleweed

Often used by florists in wreaths, this woodland native makes a pretty but slow-growing groundcover. It is also used in rock gardens, along paths and under trees and shrubs. There are numerous, milky white flowers, but the leaves steal the show. Leathery foliage matures to bronze or red in fall and keeps its color through the winter. Plant in spring or fall in peaty, acid soil with lots of organic matter. Propagate by division of rooted runners in spring.
