Ledum groenlandicum

Habitat:
 Upper Montane and subalpine

 Less than 1 m

Description: At first glance, Labrador tea is often mistaken for buffaloberry, although the two bear little more than passing resemblance. Labrador tea has smooth, oval shaped, shiny green leaves which curl towards their brown, fuzzy underside. Unlike the buffaloberry, the leaves are evergreen. The flowers are also very different. Labrador tea flowers form an umbrella-like cluster of small, white, five-petaled flowers.
