This is an excellent heather, with beautiful spray of purple flowers in September, contrasting golden-green evergreen foliage in the summer, turning to a stunning shade of copper red in the winter. It is a small variety reaching just 20cm above the ground and a maximum spread of no more than 45cm.
Ideal for using as a container grown specimen for adding a splash of colour to window boxes or tubs.
Buying Heathers from Jacksons Nurseries
Unlike many garden centres, supermarkets and some nurseries here at Jacksons Nurseries we sell the majority of our stock all year round. Our stock is for the most part grown outdoors making it far hardier than those grown under glass and/or only sold ‘In Season’.
Here at Jacksons Nurseries we would favour a hardy outdoor grown plant every time. They are far less likely to suffer from the shock of being planted in colder conditions and they will begin to establish more rapidly the following spring. This can mean that they don’t look like a ‘picture perfect’ plant when purchased out of season but with the correct care and a little time you’ll have a wonderful plant to enjoy for many years to come.
