Rhizomatous herb native to alpine and arctic tundra producing an amber-colored edible fruit formed by 5 to 25 drupelets. Leaves alternate, soft, handlike lobes on straight, branchless stalks. After pollination, the white (sometimes reddish-tipped) flowers form raspberry-sized berries. Each fruit is initially pale red, ripening into an amber color in early autumn.
Grows in arctic bogs, marshes and wet meadows and requires sunny exposures in acidic ground
