Northern Fog Fruit
Perennial with low, trailing or ascending stems that can root at the nodes, often forming large colonies. Flowers in small, dense, spherical or cylindrical clusters, becoming more elongated with time, on long stalks arising from upper leaf axils. Individual flowers white or light pink; each with a single bract at its base, the bracts often purplish. The “irregular” (lipped) character of each flower is not immediately apparent in this species. Blooms May–September. Leaves opposite, spaced apart, elliptical to lanceolate, toothed.
