Heather (Calluna vulgaris), packet of 100 seeds, organic
Family: Heath (Ericaceae)
Hardy to Zones 4 to 9
Woody perennial subshrub native to the British Isles, brightly flowering to 2 feet tall. A very classy herbal landscape plant, easy to maintain, fire and browse resistant, drought tolerant once established, and long-lived. Traditional usage: urinary tract infection and gravel. Source of arbutin. Yellow dye plant. Heather prefers full sun and acidic soils. Give peat moss. Surface sow seed in fall, midwinter or early spring, press in hard and keep cool and moist until germination, then work up seedlings in pots. Good container plant, excellent in raised beds, works well for sculpturing the landscape around paths to doorways and gates–low and spreading, trimmable, flowers long-lasting and showy.
