Calluna vulgaris ‘Red Star’
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.

Calluna vulgaris ‘Red Star’ full sun  partial shade

Distinctive for its opulent finery, 'Red Star' flashes deep purplish red double blooms on long upright flower spikes near summer's end, earning this attractive somewhat open growing Calluna its name. Tiny dapper leaves craft a dark forest green foil that offsets the vivid blossoms and counterposes lime and golden-leafed Heathers, such as Calluna vulgaris 'Blazeaway' to great effect.

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