information: "Kinniknick" is a native plant
that can be found in
our Colorado Rocky Mountains.
Kinnikinick is very difficult to grow in the Denver metro
area. There are a couple of hybrid varieties that are easier to
cultivate than the native species. The local garden center or
greenhouse may have 'Big Bear' or "Massachusetts' available.
Kinnikinick leaves and berries could be collected from native
wild plants on private property.
