It's tiny. Solved: Creeping Snowberry
« on: May 12, 2009, 05:28:26 AM »
Well, I told ya it was tiny. So what is it? It was growing on a spruce/balsam fir site, ground is mossy and damp.




The scale bar is inches.  :)

It's a tiny plant that gets no bigger and trails across the moss on the ground. The stem isn't really woody but it's tough and persists year after year. See the little bell shaped flowers? ;D

Nope.  Very tiny still.  ;D ;) It ain't in Audubon.  Berry ain't red neither, when ripe. :D :D
