Erica erigena f. aureifolia ‘Golden Lady’
at Digging Dog

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.

This lambent E. ‘W. T. Rackliff’ sport was introduced by nursery owner John Letts in 1964. Sprinkled with urn-shaped pure white blooms, ‘Golden Lady’ develops a shapely low mound of fine textured needle-like foliage, colored in light yellow, gold, chartreuse and green hues that persists throughout the year.

Size: 10"–18" high x 10"–18" wide; hardy to zone 7.
