Calluna vulgaris ‘H. E. Beale’
at Digging Dog

Calluna

Heather

Callunas’ tiny scale-like leaves range from deep green to silver, gold and bronze, with some changing color after a frost. Flowering from mid-to-late summer in cool whites, pinks and purples, the small bell-shaped flowers are frozen in graceful repose on one-sided spikes. Heathers are marvelous fresh or dried.

Christened after the owner of former British nursery Maxwell & Beale, this shapely AGM recipient has graced gardens since 1925 and remains nearly everyone’s favorite Calluna. Small linear gray-green leaves clothe a dense growing compact habit that promotes upright spiky racemes of delightful double shell pink flowers. Emphasizing soft hues, ‘H. E. Beale’s profuse long lasting pastel blooms complement any summer-time color scheme, and in winter its mauve-infused evergreen foliage further extends the hushed tones.

Size: 18" high x 2' 0" wide; hardy to zone 5.

Customer Comment:

“I ordered three Kniphofias and a Salvia a little over a week ago, and received them today. E-mail response to my web order was prompt and provided all the information I needed. The Kniphofias are nice, healthy, generous divisions. The Salvia is…good value for the price and very healthy.”
