LoreHeathers grow wild in much of Britain and northern Europe the same way sagebrush covers the American west. Heathers were always cheap and available plant material. The plants were used to create small household brooms and dusters. They were also used to pack crates of whiskey and other breakables for shipping, and so were spread around early on and found their way to North America along with traditional brooms.
Average Size at MaturityModerate growth to 15 in. high, spreading to 2 ft.
Bloom TimeSummer
Design IdeasHeathers 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. Does well in porous troughs and well drained unglazed ceramic pots.
