Description: This low-lying evergreen forms a carpet-like covering within high subalpine meadows. Its creeping branches have dark, evergreen-like needles that grow at right angles to the woody stem. The needles are not sharp like traditional evergreens. The branches may terminate in a tight grouping of greenish, urn-shaped flowers. The tip of the petals don't curl back slightly like the white heather.
