This is a vigorous, evergreen variety with stiff, bright green, needle-like foliage that becomes attractively tipped with yellow during the spring. Often considered to be the best white variety available, it produces masses of stunning, small, bell-shaped, pure white flowers in spike-like racemes from December to April.
These are the brightest white flowers of almost any heath, making it great for planting in groups to create a stunning, winter groundcover effect in full sun. It's also suitable for growing in containers and produces nectar that will attract bees and other wildlife to the garden. It has an outstanding, bushy growth habit with upright branches but a spreading shape overall
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.
