A vibrant, low growing, evergreen heather with distinctive, copper foliage that takes on a brilliant shade of warm bronze-red over the winter. Perfect for using in the foreground of a small border or as a foundation plant, it has a compact, densely-branched, mat-forming growth habit and bears masses of beautiful, urn-shaped, rosy to purplish-pink blooms on long racemes from August to October.
Great for using in mass plantings, along walkways and in troughs or patio containers that have good drainage, it can be pruned after flowering to ensure a neat, compact shape is maintained. As it prefers rocky, unimproved soils do not be tempted to over-fertilise
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.
