Position: full sun or partial shade
Soil: well-drained acid soil. Will tolerate mildly alkaline soil.Rate of growth: average
Flowering period: January to April
Hardiness: fully hardy
Masses of bright pink, urn-shaped flowers from January to April appear among bronze-green foliage. This low, upright winter heather looks most at home planted with other heathers, or in a large, permeable container with winter-flowering pansies, ivies and early-flowering crocuses. In the garden, it looks best planted in bold drifts among other heathers, or beneath deciduous trees. Since it tolerates mildly alkaline soil, there's no need to use a special potting compost.Garden care: During the growing season water regularly, applying a half-strength application of a balanced liquid fertiliser every four weeks. After the plant has flowered trim with shears or secateurs to remove the dead flowers and encourage bushy growth.
