Plant details

Calluna vulgaris is the native heather or ling of heaths and moorlands, and it has fathered many lovely varieties for massing in gardens as ground cover. They are generally summer or autumn flowering, and need acid soils and sunny sites for the best colour. 'Foxhollow Wanderer' flowers in mid-season, with rich deep pink blooms in profusion. To keep plants compact their dead flowers need shearing off, after flowering or in early spring to avoid removing too much decorative foliage.
