Related to blueberries, wintergreen is a common flavoring agent for mouthwash, gum, toothpaste and candy. Wintergreen makes an excellent tea. It came by its name by virtue of its green leaves during the winter. Used as a ground cover, wintergreen grows to 6" high.
Growing information: Wintergreen is very slow to germinate (2-3 months) and requires stratification. Soak seeds overnight, then place in a plastic bag with a paper towel. Do not allow the seeds to dry out. Check back often. When they start to germinate, carefully sow in small pots about 1/8" deep. Keep indoors and maintain constant moisture until the seedlings emerge then cut back on the watering, but don't let the soil dry out. Transplant outdoors 12-16" apart in a location with partial shade after the last frost.
