A prostrate, evergreen variety producing fabulous, shell pink to pale lavender blooms sporadically from December to April. It has rich, golden-yellow foliage which is tipped with bronze for much of the year and deepens to orange-red just as the beautiful flowers are being produced.
Perfect for rock gardens, group plantings or groundcover, it has a compact, yet vigorous and wide-spreading habit. It has won the prestigious RHS Award of Garden Merit and will flourish in partial shade but with diminished flowering.
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.
