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.
