Erica x darleyensis

Hybrid Heather

Heaths and heathers come in many species and varieties.  Most are not well-suited to the heat and humidity of the southern U.S. but this hybrid between two European species, Erica erigena and E. carnea, is quite satisfactory.  It is a low mounding evergreen shrub to 24 inches.  It has small dark green needle-like leaves and rose-pink flowers.  Plant in semi-shade, with well-drained acid soil.  Dirr (Manual of Woody Landscape Plants) says:  If one wants to grow a heath in the southeastern United States, this species represents a credible starting point."
