Calluna vulgaris ‘Winter Chocolate’
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.

A delightful melding of warm colors, ‘Winter Chocolate’ is a year-round marvel in our Heather garden. Radiantly bedecked with chartreuse, chocolate and golden hues for winter, spring’s new growth brings creamy salmon red tips. As the days grow longer, the foliar shades broaden to an alluring range of oranges, pinks and yellows, toned by bright greens. As if this isn’t enough, soft lavender blossoms just about engulf the plant in late summer.

Size: 12"–20" high x 18"–2' 0" wide; hardy to zone 4.
