Ericas make up a wide range of over 700 plants, occurring in a range of habitats, such as dry heathland to wet moorlands in Europe and temperate Africa. The flowers are usually formed in bell shapes along spike-like racemes. While some species are frost hardy, those that are not should be grown outside and instead be protected in a cool greenhouse. Erica x darleyensis 'Furzey' is a bushy shrub that bears flowers that deepen from a rose pink to dark with age. It is particularly suitable for well drained soil and makes very good ground cover. It produces flowers in late winter and early spring.
