Erica carnea Myretoun Ruby

December–March.



<i>Erica carnea</i> ‘Myretoun Ruby’

Erica

Heath

Heaths have fine, short, needlelike evergreen leaves that vary from deep green to silver, gold, or chartreuse. Tiny, urn-shaped flowers sparkle like hoarfrost, in shades from white to pinks and rosy purples. Though most floriferous in winter and early spring, (and highly welcome at that dreary time!), a scheme for year-round color can be developed by combining with Callunas.

Donning the name of a castle in Wigton, Scotland, ‘Myretoun Ruby’s low spreading, Yew-green needles and deep reddish purple blooms achieve a gem-like opulence. Perhaps the darkest red flowering carnea cultivar in cultivation, this Erica’s saturated blossoms age with bright crimson highlights. Nestle amid Ajuga ‘Emerald Chip’, and relish the wintertime splendor.

Size: 10"–12" high x 2' 0" wide; hardy to zone 5.
