Mitchella repens; Rubiaceae
Last one for the “what’s green now’ feature. Growing in tiny pockets of soil, cascading along rocks, never more than an inch tall (but often many feet long), partridgeberry is one of my favorites. Look for the twin blossoms
in late May, and the two-eyed fruit
in late July.
How can you not love this plant? It’s adorable. And tough.
