Andromeda polifolia Macrophylla
A dainty littel shrub reaching up to 15 cms high at the most unless growing through another plant. Evergreen foliage is larger than most of the other species of Andromeda at 2 cms by 1 cm or maybe a little larger. These are deep green and have conspicous sunken veins. Flowers are usually held in dense clusters on this species at the stem tips. Each flower is rounded and about a quarter of an inch wide, although it forms more of a spherical shape with a very small opening. Pendulous in habit, the flowers make an attractive sight in spring and last for several weeks. Multiplies readily by runners for anyone who is interested!
