Product Description

Heather is a compact, shrubby, evergreen ground cover plant from Northern Europe that covers itself with spires of tiny, brightly colored bell-shaped flowers from late summer through fall. Heathers are mound forming plants that, depending on the cultivar, may grow anywhere from 4" to 3 feet tall. The tiny, brightly colored, bell shaped flowers appear on spikes that stand about 5"-10" above the foliage. With careful planning, you can have Heather plants blooming from June until November Heathers can be planted at any time of the year that the soil is workable, in an area that receives a minimum of 4-6 hours of full sun each day, except in hot summer regions where they will grow well in light shade. Insufficient sunlight will result in weak and spindly growth.

  • Available in red, yellow, green, blue or purple.
  • Stylish and vibrant.
  • Great for containers or ground cover.
