  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: August to October
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Upright spikes of semi-double flowers appear from August to October at the tips of the leafy branches of this beautiful Scots heather. Initially a rich cerise-red, the flowers turn a beautiful shade of ruby-red, which is accentuated by the dark green foliage. Compact and easy-to-grow, it's an ideal ground cover for sunny areas, where it will provide a long season of interest. An AGM recipient - and deservedly so!

  • Garden care: When planting incorporate lots of composted pine needles or leaf-mould into the planting hole. In March or April cut back the flowered shoots to within 2.5cm (1in) of the old growth.
