Cultivation & Habitat

Seed – requires stratification and is best sown in early autumn in a cold frame. Stored seed requires one month stratification at about 3¡c and is best sown as early as possible in the year. Prick out the seedlings when they are large enough to handle and grow on in a cold frame. Plant them out into their permanent positions in late spring of the following year. Division in early spring or just before leaf-fall in the autumn[200].
Easily grown in a good well-drained loamy soil in sun or semi-shade[1, 11, 200]. Very closely related to R. arcticus and considered to be no more than a form of that species by many botanists[101]. This plant is smaller than R. arcticus and has smaller fruits[200].
Northern N. America – Alaska to Yukon.
