Heather x darleyensis (Large Plant)

Heather

Hardy Shrub

Evergreen Heathers are very popular in the garden for their clusters of lilac-pink flowers which are tough and weatherproof, persisting from December to May! The winter flowering period is also really useful for brightening a dull time of year in the garden, and plants are easy to grow and suitable for small gardens.

Unlike some heathers, Erica darleyensis does not need an acidic soil. Plant Erica darleyensis into borders, rockeries, onto slopes and banks, or plant up some mixed containers with Heather, winter Pansies and Ivy. You can even try Heather in drifts beneath trees and shrubs, it makes an exceptionally good weed-beating ground cover. Height: 30cm (12"). Spread: 60cm (24").
