Calluna vulgaris 'Mrs Pat'

Heather

The Ling or Scots Heather group consists of one evergreen shrub, of which there are over 1000 cultivars. Similar in appearance to Erica (Heath or Heather) species, but Calluna's flower petals are somewhat concealed by a pink calyx. Heathers of the Calluna, Erica and Daboecia genera add interest to a garden year round. For some, their golden foliage turns burnt orange in winter. Others flower for a long period during summer, fall, and winter. Flowers come in a variety of colors. Some are bicolored. Use double flower varieties for drying. Best in moderate climates, especially near oceans. Prefer well-drained, acidic soil and require little care.
