‘Kerstin’ Heather

Calluna vulgaris 12x18" Selection by Brita Johansson, Sweden.

Downy grey foliage turns yellow up the stems and develops coral-pink tips mid-July. The unexpected coloration just before flowering make a subtle rainbow. Mauve flowers August to September. We planted some a few months ago that are already eye-catching.

Magical, mythical and medicinal evergreen groundcover. Native to the dry forests, heaths and bare grounds of Britain and Ireland. More recently naturalized in North America. Z4. (4" pots)

Additional Information


Plant about 18" apart each way and let it spread. Lower the pH if necessary, but it does not tolerate wet spots like cranberries and blueberries.
