2. Chickweed Wintergreen
(Trientalis europaea L.)

2. Chickweed Wintergreen

In spite of its popular name this attractive little plant is not a wintergreen nor a chickweed. It belongs, in fact, to the primrose family. The stem, a few inches high, bears at its top a whorl of five or six leaves, some larger than others. The one or two white flowers, each on a separate stalk, spring from the centre. Chickweed wintergreen is common in the Scottish pine forests and occurs as far south as Yorkshire.
