The Labrador Tea is white with the stamens of the flowers sticking out of the plant. it has short leaves around 1-2 inches wide and long. The plant has shallow roots for gathering water without going as deep as the permafrost.
The plant has adapted to be able to acheive photosynthesis in the harsh climate. In the warmer areas of the tundra, it grows straight up and in the colder areas, it grows almost carpet-like, closer to the ground. The plants keeps the dead leaves that die for extra warmth. The leaves are curved and droop underneath to maintain that warmth. The dark colors of the plant, exception of the flowers, are to help the plant to attract heat.
