Heather Lady in Pink
Heather - Lady in Pink, Calluna vulgaris 'Lady in Pink', is a summer flowering budblooming heather that is upright and branching.
The Lady in Pink offers a profusion of lovely bright pink-rose blooms from late August until November! Attracting butterflies and hummingbirds, Lady in Pink has bright fragrant flowers that look outstanding in borders, as groundcovers, in containers, or in rock gardens.
Callunas grow and flower best in full sun but can tolerate partial shade. Good drainage is very important since they are liable to get root diseases if growing in wet spots.
Prune by cutting branches below the flowers in fall or in early spring in colder zones. It requires full sun and acid loving fertile well drained soil that is humus rich.
Lady in Pink is a budbloomer which means that it is a form of Calluna in which the flowers never develop beyond the bud stage, but as a result, keep their color for a long period.
