    Need help identifying this plant. Found growing in forested sedge dominated wetland east of Quilcene, WA.

    Hi there,

    This looks to me like Rhododendron groenlandicum, commonly called Labrador tea. I would bet it is growing in a fairly boggy, wet area?

    That must be it - thanks Andrew! Yes this site was very wet.
