OTHER: Scotch Heather is a small evergreen shrub native to Europe, & is the only “true” Heather. It has an upright growth habit with tiny fragrant foliage that turns a beautiful bronze - purple in fall. From summer to fall, plants have zillions of flowers all up & down the stems. The flowers can be single or double. The flowers are great for cutting or drying. Heather is regarded as being lucky, so it's popular in wedding bouquets & as good luck charms. The dried branches are also made into brooms. Birds like grouse enjoy eating the seeds. Heather is a host plant for butterflies, & nectar plant for bees. Heather Honey has a very unique delicious flavor!
Scotch Heather can be grown in containers, regular or rock gardens, or as a ground cover. They must have well drained soil. The plants tolerate the grazing of sheep, cattle & deer, as well as coastal conditions like wind & salt spray. The flowers stay on plant over winter, in purple or brown depending on the climate, but both look nice!
