This is a shrub or small tree that often grows on high, dry ridges.
The small pink flowers bloom in June. As the seeds mature, each one
develops a long feathery tail.
The leaves are grayish-green, and quite thick and leathery.
The edges are smooth, and are curled under.
This shrub is usually found on dry hillsides. The flowers and seeds
are very similar to the Curl-Leaf species described above, but the
leaves look very different. They have toothed edges like the leaves
of the alder and other members of the Birch Family.
