Description and General Information:
Phyllodoce glanduliflora, or yellow mountain heather, is native to northwestern North America, from Wyoming, Montana, Idaho, Oregon and Washington, north through Alberta, British Columbia, Yukon and Alaska. It grows from subalpine forests to the alpine tundra.
Plants are woody, with a low mat-like habit. Stems reach to 20 cm, clothed in narrow, needle-like evergreen leaves. The nodding, urn-shaped flowers are produced in terminal clusters. Both the flowers and the pedicels are covered in sticky, glandular hairs.
Tip cuttings about 6-9 cm may be taken from mid-summer through mid-fall.
