Hudsonia Linnaeus. Sand-heather, Golden-heather, Beach-heather.

Key to Hudsonia

A genus of 3 species, dwarf shrubs, of ne. North America. A preliminary molecular study suggested that H. tomentosa might warrant generic status separate from H. ericoides and H. montana (Guzman & Vargas 2009); a more detailed study shows Hudsonia as here circumscribed as monophyletic and sister to Crocanthemum (Biver et al. 2016).
