Plant Species of the genus Bryanthus

Information about this genus
Name: Bryanthus
Cultivation: CULTIVATION: Very much a plant of the cool-temperate zone, Bryanthus soon suffers in either hot, dry conditions or severe cold. Plant in cool, moist, well-drained humus-rich soil with shade from the hottest sun and water well in summer. The seed will germinate freely, though as the seedlings are tiny and easily damaged, it is usually easier to propagate the plant from layers or small tip cuttings.
Description: The sole species in this genus is a small heath-like shrub from northern Japan and the nearby Kamchatka region. It hugs the ground and spreads to form a wiry-stemmed carpet. A member of the erica family, Ericaceae, it is most at home with its relatives, such as the dwarf rhododendrons and Cassiope, and other small acid-soil alpine and arctic plants.
