Narrow-leaf Labrador tea (Rhododendron tomentosum): This species appears to reach its southern extent (on the east side of its range) in the very northern part of the region. There appear to be very few collections, all from the upper end of Lynn Canal. (A search in ARCTOS includes many collections currently identified as Rhododendron groenlandicum, which may have previously been thought to be this species.)
