Hailing from the moist forested foothills of the Himalayas, this intriguing Ericaceae family member is a vigorous hybrid between incurvata and serpens that bears lustrous Huckleberry-like foliage. Large woody tubers give way to upright and arching branches neatly lined with red-suffused new growth and slender green leathery leaves.
In an enchanting summertime display, pendulous fairy-tale flowers, each embellished by a tiny maroon checkerboard pattern, resemble narrow, 5-sided creamy white lanterns. Superb as a hanging container specimen or elevated along a pathway amid ferns, ‘Ludgvan Cross’ prefers bright shade, well drained acid soil and a sheltered spot.
Blooms June – August.
Size: 4' 0" high x 4' 0" wide.
