An excellent, prostrate evergreen bush which forms a wide mat of handsome, spiny, mid- to dark green foliage that provides a perfect backdrop to the blooms. From winter to early spring it becomes clothed with masses of stunning, urn-shaped, pink flowers darkening throughout the season which are produced in lovely, ornamental clusters.
Perfect for incorporating into group plantings to add some interest to the winter garden, it can also be used singularly in the border or rockery and combines particularly well with Erica x darleyensis Silberschmelze.
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.
