Wynanda Scotch Heather
Calluna vulgaris 'Wynanda'
Water regularly to maintain evenly moist soil - weekly, or more often.
|Botanical Pronunciation||ka-LOO-na vul-GAIR-iss|
|Average Size at Maturity||Moderate growing; reaches 18 to 20 in. tall, 24 to 18 in. wide.|
|Bloom Time||Late Summer to Fall|
|Design Ideas||Perfect in borders and rock gardens or massed, this evergreen shrub is a great choice to accompany rhododendrons and acid-loving plants. Planted as a ground cover, the plants will slowly form a dense mat that defeats most weeds and provides year round beauty. Highly desirable for their interesting texture and long lasting display, "bud-blooming" heathers such as this are known for flower buds that swell and color up, but unlike traditional Erica or Calluna varieties, never open to reveal the flower, instead providing a unique, showy display of upright, densely packed bloom spikes.|
