Erica veitchii ‘Ex­eter’

Garden News (UK) - - About Now -

Even if we have a mild win­ter, you’ll be guar­an­teed a snow-like ef­fect when this heather be­comes smoth­ered in plumes of fra­grant, white, bell-shaped flow­ers dur­ing late win­ter. The icy white blooms bear a stark con­trast to its bright green fo­liage and, as you’d ex­pect from a heather, it prefers acidic soil, al­though it will tol­er­ate putting its roots down into neu­tral or al­ka­line soil if planted in a sunny po­si­tion with good drainage.

Sweet-smelling flow­ers of erica ‘Ex­eter’ bring a win­ter won­der­land feel to the gar­den
