Alpine Wintergreen. Our collection as cuttings of this little groundcover growing on the shores just above waterline at a montane forest lake in northern California.  Seldom encountered for sale despite being distributed across the western US and Canada.  White flowers with a red calyx followed by red fruit.  This has been easy-peasy for us and enjoys an airy moist soil high in organic matter.
