Blooming copiously, 'Askival' has bright lavender-pink open blooms with prominent stamens over a small mound of narrow leaves. The flower on this cultivar is more like its parent, Kalmiopsis. It does well in a container, rockery, your alpine garden, or in any very 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. 12 – 14" x 9 – 12" mounding evergreen shrublet.
Minimum temperature: -40° F
