Calluna vulgaris, commonly called Scotch Heather or Summer Heather is an evergreen shrub that grows in a small mound. They can be pruned in the fall to keep their shape tidier.
Calluna Heather plants will grow and bloom best in full sun, but can also tolerate part shade. Full sun will produce much brighter winter foliage coloring. Good soil drainage is essential with heather to prevent root disease. It is also crucial that they are watered regularly in the summer until they are well established.
