Cassiope mertensiana ssp. gracilis

25th June 2016

A subalpine species from western North America from Alaska south to the hiugher mountains in California. The subspecies ssp. gracilis comes from the mountains of Idaho, Montana and Oregon where it grows on moist granite slopes. Forms in cultivation tend to be finer in growth, though this isn't a significant part of the original description.
