A most attractive woodland creeper with highly ornamental foliage, Partridgeberry can be used as a groundcover under acid-loving shrubs and in terraria in the winter. The common name implies that the scarlet fruits are relished by partridges, and they are consumed by a variety of birds and mammals. Indigenous Americans commonly drank a tea made from the leaves as an aid in childbirth.
