A brand new variety with slender, upright spikes of vibrant pink, urn-shaped flowers appear from June to October above the lustrous, dark green leaves. Cantabrian heather is robust and long-flowering and looks great creating evergreen groundcover towards the front of a sunny bed. It can also be used to fill pots and containers on a terrace.
