|Average Size at Maturity||Fast growing, spreading mound to 9 in. tall, 2 ft. wide.|
|Design Ideas||Heathers are not too particular about fertility but demand absolute drainage. This has made them a favorite of alpine rock gardeners where elevated positions on outcroppings or banks ensures water flows through quickly. An ideal candidate for top of retaining walls and in raised planters provided soil backfill is granular. Exploit the acidic soils around the edges of conifer groves. Blends nicely with grasses for wild gardens, particularly in coastal conditions.|
