Sugar Plum' is a darling, compact, ever-bright-green, low mounding shrub 6" x 24". Bees will cover the pink bell flowers that dance over the tops of narrow leaves first in May – June with periodic encores into late summer. Very high on the cuteness scale, it would do well in a container, rockery, your alpine garden (time to start one if you don't have one), or in any well-drained garden spot. The intergeneric hybrid is between Phyllodoce (mountain heaths and heathers) and Kalmiopsis (from Oregon's southwest regions)! Plant in acidic soil and be careful not to overwater.
Minimum temperature: -20° F
