R. 'Arctic Tern'

R. 'Arctic Tern'

Mr. Larson made the cross R. trichostomum x ledum, which resulted in this interesting hybrid. The plant has small white flower trusses only 1 inch in diameter and consisting of 20 tiny white flowers with a greenish throat. The effect is quite unique, and popular among collectors. Blooming is in April into May, and is usually heavy. The leaves are small and in scale with the flowers. Hardy to zone 7.

Rare Variety – This variety is difficult to find anywhere due to these reasons
·       Hard to propagate – many cultivars do not root easily from cuttings, but at a reduced rate thus making the plant rare.
·       Hard to find – these cultivars are hard to find in the first place, probably because they are hard to root from cuttings
