Description

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").

Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.

How to Grow
Grow Erica darleyensis in neutral to acidic, well-drained soil in full sun. When growing in containers, use a good quality soil-based potting mix.
More Info
During the growing season, water plants regularly and feed with a half-strength liquid fertiliser every 4 weeks. After flowering, trim plants with shears to remove faded blooms and promote bushy growth.
