ABSTRACT
The article offers information on Partridgeberry, a perennial evergreen plant found throughout eastern North America. Partridgeberry is also known as twinberry, winter clove, checkerberry, running fox, and deer berry. The genus name, Mitchella, was given by Carl Linnaeus, commonly known as the father of taxonomy. He named the plant for his friend John Mitchell, a Scottish physician, cartographer, naturalist and plant-lover. The species name, repens, refers to the plant's creeping habit.
