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.
Celebrating some of the most vibrant brick red foliage among the species, ‘Firefly’ never fails to snap us out of a gray winter-day funk. Sensational warm shades ranging from salmon to terra-cotta suffuse the leaves the rest of the year, while deep mauve flowers festoon its upright compact frame in late summer. A recipient of Britain’s sought-after AGM, this vividly colored Heather merits a choice niche in your garden.
Size: 18"–20" high wide; hardy to zone 4.
