Out of stock

Heather - Lady in Red, Calluna vulgaris 'Lady in Red', is a summer flowering budbloomng heather that is upright and branching.

The Lady in Red offers a profusion of lovely bright red blooms from late August until November! Attracting butterflies and hummingbirds, Lady in Red has amazing 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 Red 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.
