Mitchella repens (Partridge Berry)
The first time you see this plant growing in a Kentucky woodland you may think it is the incredibly aggressive exotic plant Vinca minor. It has similar shaped, yet smaller leaves and has the same habit of creeping along the ground. However, this native plant is wayyyyy less aggressive. In early summer the plant produces pairs of small white flowers that are eventually replaced by small red berries that have 2 bud scars, one from each of the flowers.
