An herbaceous member of the Dogwood family, bunchberry is found throughout the northern half of North America growing in mountainous forests where soils are cool, moist and acidic. One to two layers of oval pointed leaves grow in whorls along the 6-8" stems. In the late spring, Dogwood-like blossoms appear with four white bracts that surround clusters of tiny greenish-white flowers. Bright red berries in late summer add interest and attract a variety of wildlife.
