Calluna vulgaris is a bushy, dwarf shrub that enjoys full sun and acid soil. Stems are packed with tiny green leaves and flowering spikes. Trim off old spikes as they start to fade to maintain growth and colour. The Calluna vulgaris 'Garden Girls' series come in a wide and bright range of reds, pinks and whites. Once the flowers appear they don't fully open, providing a long-lasting display of colour.
