SKU: 8818 Category:


Masses of pink, urn-shaped flowers appear from January to March among bright green evergreen foliage.

This winter heather has an upright and compact habit, making it a particularly suitable container plant where it will reach heights of 40-50cm.

Try it in a pot near the house with winter-flowering pansies and early flowering crocuses, where it will lift the spirits in the depths of winter. In the garden it looks best planted in bold drifts among other heathers, or beneath deciduous trees. Bees will love it too!

As it tolerates mildly alkaline soil there’s no need to use a special potting compost.

During the growing season water regularly, applying a half-strength application of a balanced liquid fertiliser every four weeks. After the plant has flowered trim with shears or secateurs to remove the dead flowers and encourage bushy growth.
