30+ seeds Andromeda polifolia.

Andromeda polifolia, common name bog-rosemary, is a species of flowering plant native to northern parts of the Northern Hemisphere. It is the only member of the genus Andromeda, and is only found in bogs in cold peat-accumulating areas.

It is a small shrub growing to 10-20 centimetres (4-8 in) (rarely to 40 cm or 16 in) tall with slender stems. The leaves are evergreen, alternately arranged, lanceolate, 1-5 centimetres (0.4-2.0 in) long and 2-8 millimetres (0.08-0.31 in) broad, dark green above (purplish in winter) and white beneath with the leaf margins curled under. The flowers are bell-shaped, white to pink, 5-8 mm (0.20-0.31 in) long; flowering is in late spring to early summer. The fruit is a small capsule containing numerous seeds.

Numerous cultivars have been developed for garden use, all of which require damp acid soil in shade.

USDA Hardiness Zone (°F): 2 (-50 to -40 °F)
