Heather (Calluna vulgaris), packet of 100 seeds, organic

$2.95

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.

100 seeds per packet, Certified Organically Grown

    Hi! i thought it was heather, a tiny blue-lavender ground flower, each plant a little skinny stem with a flower or 2 or 3 tiny flowers. it volunteered in a sunny place, but a friend weeded it all out. from a distance, by itself, it looked like a soft glow of color

      Yes, there are several low-growing spring weeds with little blue flowers like this. they are very nice, and I always am happy to see them come in, they do no harm. Heather is woody.
