Erica

Heath

Heaths have fine, short, needlelike evergreen leaves that vary from deep green to silver, gold, or chartreuse. Tiny, urn-shaped flowers sparkle like hoarfrost, in shades from white to pinks and rosy purples. Though most floriferous in winter and early spring, (and highly welcome at that dreary time!), a scheme for year-round color can be developed by combining with Callunas.

Blooms October-January.

Current Staff’s Favorite Plant

staff favorite plant

We love Cistus populifolius for it's big, beautiful red buds that adorn it's handsome foliage all winter. The unique apple green foliage has decorative rippled margins and comprises dense hearty mounds, creating a luxurious backdrop for its yellow-centered white flowers. Big red-hued buds appear in late winter and look stunning with the verdant leaves and springtime tissue-thin blooms.

“My plants arrived from Digging Dog yesterday: healthy, large, beautifully packed, and on time. From the website to the customer service to the arrival of these lovely grasses, this has been a very satisfying experience.
