‘Wickwar Flame’ Heather

Calluna vulgaris 1-2' x same. Archfield Nursery, 1970. Developed by George Osmond and named after his village in Gloucestershire, England.

Lavender-mauve-pink flowers August through October. Summer foliage is glowing greenish-yellow with hints of orange, then orange in autumn and completely fiery red in winter. Mind-blowing. We planted ours near an oft-used path and recommend the same to you! Winner of the 1993 RHS Award of Garden Merit.

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)
