Scotch Heather

Out of stock

The Scotch Heather, Calluna vulgaris 'Sandy', is a mutation of the variety 'Melanie' and its bright yellow foliage resists the sun well.

Sandy is a low-growing perennial evergreen ground cover or low shrub for sun; blooms during late summer. It is upright and wide, and has pure white, very resistant buds between September to December.

The masses of white flower buds never open thereby remaining colorful from August until hard frost! Superb for alpine, rock or trough gardens.

Sandy 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.

It requires full sun and acid loving fertile well drained soil that is humus rich.

Zones 5-7.

* Great for rock gardens!
