Calluna vulgaris ‘Blazeaway’
at Digging Dog

Calluna vulgaris Blazeaway

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.

Calluna vulgaris ‘Blazeaway’ full sun  partial shade

Once you witness the blazing intensity of this bushy mat-forming beauty there’s no disputing its name. Summer paints sun-kissed gold and orange shades on dense needle-shaped foliage bejeweled with late blooming soft lavender-colored flowers, while frosty nights imbue radiant dark crimson reds to heat up the coldest winter day. ‘Blazeaway’ can be massed near Calluna ‘Firefly’ and Calluna ‘Wickwar Flame’ and juxtaposed against the dark greenery of Erica ‘Purple Beauty’ for a fulgent quiltlike spectacle.

Blooms August–September.

Size: 12" high x 15"–18" wide; hardy to zone 4.
