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

Calluna

Heather

Callunasí 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.

Calluna vulgaris ‘H. E. Beale’ full sun

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.

Blooms July–September

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

Ornamental Grasses: Autumnal Garden Stars, Plant for Outstanding October Oomph!

Celebrated headliners of the late show!

Offering superb versatility, ornamental grasses become poetry in motion on gusty days. They are best situated so their fluid shimmering inflorescences, bathed in amber, sable or smoky rose and purple shades, are backlit and set aglow by the afternoon sunlight. Most look fantastic in fresh or dried arrangements, while others produce welcome seed heads that birds adore. Be sure to browse our online selections of ornamental grasses.

“We ordered a half-dozen Bergenia 'Bressingham White'.... Not only did they arrive in tip-top shape, but they also are thriving this spring.”
