Bunchberry

[bunchberry]

Between May and July when you're walking through a thick forested area with lots of thickets or a bog, look for four white petals cradling a cluster of small greenish flower heads. Under the flower head you'll find a whorl of 6 large leaves all coming from the same part of the stalk. This is a bunchberry. [bunchberry]


In the fall, the bunchberry lives up to its name, producing a bunch of red berries (6) growing all together in a cluster similar to the flowers of spring. The bunchberry grows from 1 inch to 1 foot tall. Bunchberries are common in most of the United States and Canada.
