Also known as "twinberry" the two white flowers of this plant merge into one red berry with two dimples. 

It is a perennial sprawling ground cover in the coffee family with attractive foliage. Its roots contain the same chemical (Wintergreen oil) that gives wintergreen its smell and flavour and it is great to plant intermixed with wintergreen for a beautiful evergreen ground cover. 

An excellent choice in place of invasive periwinkle. Consider planting in shady gardens or under trees.
