Positive Weezingreens On Jul 22, 2006, Weezingreens from Seward, AK (Zone 3b) wrote:

Alaska spiraea grows along woodlands and alpine slopes. The height depends on the elevation. The branches are reddish brown and the ovate leaves dark green, but whitish on the backside. The blooms are small, in clusters of white with a tinge of pink. The leaves are used for tea by the Siberian Eskimo.
