This is a prostrate, hardy evergreen variety that will spread out horizontally or cascade down if planted on a slope. It has bright green foliage with a beautiful, silvery cast that darkens to coppery-bronze over the winter.
Bursting with luscious growth in the spring and producing an abundance of urn-shaped, pale mauve flowers from July to September which compliment the bright foliage wonderfully, it's great for using in the foreground of a border, lining walls or filling rocky nooks.
We'd also recommend it for the rock garden where the highlights of its display are the late summer flowers. It requires good drainage to survive.
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.
