This beautiful variety of heather is fully hardy, and has been awarded an RHS Award of Garden Merit. It is able to survive the harshest of British climates, and provides excellent mat-forming coverage. Its vibrant, colourful flowers appear in the early summer and last until autumn, providing a much-needed pop of colour in the garden as the weather turns colder.
After flowering each year, the plant can be lightly pruned to keep a bushy and compact shape. Propagation can occur from seed or cuttings in late summer.
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.
