This is a fantastic, evergreen heather with attractive, overlapping, mid-green leaves which are tinged orange-red in spring and display eye-catching growing tips in shades of pink, red and cream.
Combining well with hollies, creeping phlox and winter thyme, it bears masses of showy, purple-pink to rose-pink flowers in terminal, one sided, spike-like racemes from August to September. It is perfect for naturalising any part of the garden and can be used as groundcover or planted en masse on hillsides.
Ideal growing conditions are in an open, sunny position where it will form a thick mat of richly-coloured foliage.

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.
