Rhododendron neoglandulosum

This is my new plant, the native bog-loving shrub, Labrador Tea (Rhododendron neoglandulosum, formerly Ledum glandulosum). It will grow to about 3 feet tall, 3 feet across and will have small white rhododendron flowers. I first saw this species in the wild a couple of years ago in a bog near Crescent City growing with sedges, Darlingtonia californica, and western azaleas. I'm keeping it in a pot until it gets bigger.
