What is this plant type?

Well, it's not a Calluna vulgaris

Lilac Indulgence sounds lovely , but what sort of plant is it?

It must have a botanical name consisting of its Genus and species, then 'Lilac Indulgence' will be its varietal name.

e.g. Solanum lycopersicum is the tomato's botanical name, there are lots of varieties such as 'Gardener's Delight', Alicante', 'San Marzano'.

Without the full name we don't know what sort of plant it is

Pat, I've told Joseph that it's not Calluna vulgaris and suggested that he looks at your suggestion.

Morning Chicky 

Bright and dry here at the moment but there are thundery showers forecast. I'm going to pop up to the farm shop later - I wonder if I'll go into the GC and get more bulbs ?

Think you're mistaken there Joseph. It's not Calluna vulgaris ( the common heather growing all over Scottish moorlands and many other parts of Great Britain. The flower shape is all wrong as is the size of flower and leaf.

Have a look at Pats suggestion, she is a very knowledgable Australian botanical artist.
