Plant details

From early to mid-autumn, densly crowded spikes rise 40cm (16in) above the compact green foliage of Calluna vulgaris 'Annemarie', sporting double flowers in light pink, darkening to carmine rose. It looks great on its own, but you can plant it with a double white, such as 'Kinlochruel', for a stunning contrast.To maintain compact growth and maximum flowering, trim off the old flower spikes as soon as they start to fade. Old plants can be replaced after about six years, with young plants grown from cuttings taken in July or August, or from layers.
