Product Details
An exciting cross between Kalmiopsis and Phyllodoce which takes the best from them. This was considered one of the best of the resultant seedlings and named. Essentially looking like a Phyllodoce - spreading to around 40 cms in 5 or 6 years although it will be only around half this in height. The leaves are deep glossy rich green and rather needle-like, up to 1 cm long. Flowers are held on 15mm pedicels and are a pale pink in colour, around one cm wide and cup shaped.
