A hardy, evergreen, ground-covering heather with splendid, warm bronze-gold foliage during the growing season which takes on brilliant, fiery shades of orange-red in winter. The colour of the leaves is always constantly changing and it produces an abundant display of stunning, urn-shaped, rich fuchsia-pink flowers in long racemes from August to September.
It has a densely-branched, mat-forming growth habit making it perfect for using in smaller gardens, rockeries or along walkways. Attractive both in and out of flower, it won the prestigious RHS Award of Garden Merit in 1993.
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.
