Clusters of lilac-pink, urn-shaped flowers smother this plant from December to May. The small, lance-shaped, leavesa are mid green, with pink tips in spring. This pretty, Darley Dale heath has a low, spreading habit and makes an excellent groundcover plant for sunny, well-drained areas of the garden. It looks best planted in bold drifts with other heathers, or beneath deciduous trees.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.
