For me, heathers come under the same umbrella as hanging baskets, window boxes, lavender hedges . They CAN look lovely , but for every good one you see, you see a hundred horrors.
I totally accept it's pretty much all down to maintenance, but lots of folk don't bother.
I have no problem with bareness in winter, be it roses, hostas or other things. I love the resurgence in Spring and the contrast between the garden in the season.
Lantana, unfortunately, our passion flower was not only cut down to the ground, but Hubby thought he'd dug out the roots, and the flippin' thing is still coming back.
Sprayed with SBK a while back so hopefully , no more next year.
