Green in Winter: Trailing Arbutus

This rare little shrub, Epigaea repens, can be locally frequent in the high dune country near Lake Michigan. Photographed on December 30, 2012 in Porter County, Indiana.

The pictures below show the spicy-fragrant flowers that emerge in spring.

Is this the site near the Goodyera pubescens along Dune Creek?

Hi Pete,

No, this colony is more toward the middle of the park on a north-facing slope.
