Loaded with spikes of delicate, bell-shaped flowers, winter-blooming heather adds a colorful contrast to fall- & winter-dormant flowerbeds. Also called heath, Irish heath or Scotch heather, these English moorland natives thrive in cold, dreary drizzle.
These boggy shrubs grow very well in our sour soil—heathers and heaths are acid aficionados. Hardy and drought resistant, plant these in full sun, partial sun or partial shade. Little, if any, fertilizing is needed—if you do, do so in the spring.
Cool weather intensifies evergreen foliage, while it continuously blooms into spring.
