There's a beautiful heather flowering in a garden in my village, and I'd love to identify it so that I can try to get hold of one.

It's a huge mound with vibrant purple flowers, and has been flowering for a couple of weeks now I think. Any ideas anyone?

Thank you!

Try this link to the RHS plant finder there are several vibrant purple heathers, you may find it here. Posting a picture would help, there are plenty of heather lovers here, so they may be able to help further.

Thank you! I'll probably get a picture tomorrow.

I think it was probably "Challenger" on balance. Something like that anyway.
