Pink red flowers on dark green foliage that resembles fir needles. Stiff habit about 6 x 12 wide. Very rare alpine from the Mount Adams and Hurricane Ridge areas in Washington State. Hardy, but needs protection from the afternoon sun in summer. If the roots get too hot, they die. Need good drainage and acid soil. Can be a fussy plant which is typical of alpines.
