Positive Todd_Boland On Dec 15, 2004, Todd_Boland from St. John's, NL (Zone 5b) wrote:

Unlike the common bunchberry, C. canadensis, the Swedish bunchberry prefers full sun. It still will form a groundcover effect, but they do not perform well under shady conditions. The bracts are white like regular bunchberry but the minute central flowers are purple rather than yellowish, creating a stronger contrast. The fruit are deeper red than regular bunchberry but have fewer drupelets per fruit. Plants are very salt tolerant and in fact, in Newfoundland, they always grow close to the sea.
