Crowberry Flower
Empetrum nigrum

This is the only flower I have managed to find on one of these plants. The berries tend to be abundant, but the flowers are early and inconspicuous. Despite looking at several patches in the muskegs I visited today, I did not see any other flowers.

Location: Indian River Valley near Sitka, Alaska
