Chamaedaphne calyculata
Leather-leaf
Ericaceae. 1m.

Shrub bearing white bell-shaped flowers in early spring. Distinctive because flowers are borne on one side of long rows at the ends of leafy branch tips, and because narrow- elliptical, evergreen leaves are leathery in texture, and may be brown in winter. Common in bogs. Photographed at Webbs Mill Bog on Route 539.
