Bell heather is the native heather of upland moors, very tough and hardy, and flowering all summer with a peak late in the season. Plants form dense spreading mats of stiff wiry twisted stems, on dry acid soils in full sun. There are many varieties which provide a fine display of mainly reddish-purple flowers, while the foliage tends to be dark green, although forms exist. 'C. D. Eason' is an old variety, introduced in 1931, and very popular, with a fine display of mellow rosy-red blooms over a long season. The Royal Horticultural Society has given it its prestigious Award of Garden Merit (AGM).
