Plant Name

Erica carnea 'Rubra' - H6

(Erica carnea 'Unknown Warrior, Erica carnea 'Praecox Rubra')

"Known as the 'Winter Heath' or 'Alpine Heath' Erica carnea and its many cultivars is perhaps the most adaptable and hardy of all the heathers. Originating from the European Alps it is used to high altitudes and very cold temperatures. It will grow as happily on soils containing lime as in acid conditions, but the addition of peat is always beneficial both for aerating heavy soils and retaining moisture in sandy soils. All heathers have fibrous roots and these dislike compaction.

All cultivars are low growing and suitable for ground cover, some being better suited than others for this purpose. It is unlikely that they will ever need trimming, retaining their habit without attention and providing attractive foliage in summer and masses of bloom in winter. The flowers continue through winter - frost, snow, rain, and wind - offering what must be the best value of almost any garden plant. As with most heathers planting in large drifts is most effective. Remember to plant in full sun to get best flowering results." from Spring Park Nursery.

"Handy Guide to Heathers - Descriptions & Suppliers of over 1000 varieties" by David & Anne Small. Published in 1992 by Denbeigh Heather Nurseries in the UK. ISBN 0-9519160-0-9. It provides a handy reference to descriptions of heathers in the genera Andromeda, Bruckenthalia, Calluna, Daboecia and Erica which are commercially cultivated in Britain, Europe and North America. The information has very largely come from the work of the Heather Society on producing an International Register of all heather names irrespective of whether they are in commercial use or not.

Erica carnea
with link to its photos and text in
Heather Description Page in this Gallery or
Erica carnea Cultivars Index Page in Shrub Heather Index Gallery

"One of the hardiest of all heaths and very easy to grow in almost any soil. All exhibit a dwarf carpeting habit and with few exceptions rarely require pruning. Care must be taken when pruning as Erica carnea buds as early as July in the UK. It is safer to prune immediately after the flowers have faded. Prune around the edges and very lightly over the top of the plant. The flowering times of Erica carnea vary markedly, plants in milder climates being as much as 2 months earler than in colder conditions. Generally they can be expected to show flower for 6-8 weeks within the time span stated."

Hi Chris,
Thank you for your interest in linking to The Butchart Gardens.
The Butchart Gardens, founded in 1904, is a display garden, not a botanical garden. As such we do not label our flowers or other plants, in accordance with our history and tradition. Heathers (Erica) can be found throughout the various gardens and are not labelled. While we welcome you to link to our site http://www.butchartgardens.com/  and we do not have a heather map or additional information on the heathers to give out. Good luck with your site and thank you again.
Best regards,
SCOTT MCDONALD | Online Marketing Specialist, Public Relations

Dan Cooke Memorial Heather Garden

As a memorial to the late Dan Cooke, a heather garden has been installed at the Farmers' Institute in Cobble Hill. The bed contains 45 varieties chosen to provide a year-round display of foliage and flower colour. The Society is also involved in the establishment of a number of other gardens containing heather displays. The most recent one is at the Sylvan Church on Shawnigan Mill Bay Road. It celebrates the life of Ina McDowell, one of our founding members who was also well known and loved in the community.

 

Government House Gardens

Hello Chris:
Thank you for your enquiry. Please see the attached response from our volunteer gardener who maintains the heather on our grounds. The gardens on our 36 acre estate are maintained by over 400 volunteers from the Friends of Government House Garden Society. Please visit their website here for more information: http://fghgs.ca
Please let me know if you have any other questions or could be of further service. I wish you best of luck with your website.
Thank you,

Heathers at Government House, Victoria, B.C.
Bryan Taylor, Plant Nursery Supervisor.
Climatically, southern British Columbia is well suited to growing heathers. All ornamental heathers grown here are European in origin. Wet winters and dry summers (Mediterranean climate type) may not exactly duplicate the native conditions but the heathers thrive locally.
The heather bed at Government House contains 200 plants and was refurbished with locally propagated material in 2011. The bed is 48 square metres and is located on a superb SW facing rise above a Garry Oak woodland.
The grounds of Government House are open to the public every day and the trail passing the bed is popular with visitors as it overlooks the Straits of Juan de Fuca with a backdrop of the snow-covered mountains of the Olympic range in Washington State.
Species selection and grouping provide year-round colour. The very longest flowering E x darleyensis supply magnificent winter colour. Callunas with other than green foliage are used to provide unusual colour in an otherwise green surrounding. Finally, 'bud-blooming' Callunas extend the summer season into December when the first darleyensis flowers appear.
The bed is currently only four years old as was stated earlier and is expected to mature some five or so years from now but in the meantime, it is already showing great promise as an effective design for the outstandingly picturesque location.
One final comment is very significant in this location. A herd of native black tail deer inhabit the Garry Oak woodlands below the heather bed. The deer do not eat the heather so, unlike the nearby rose gardens on the property, fencing is not required so there is no detraction from the natural beauty of the setting.

 

Horticulture Centre of the Pacific

The upper bed is comprised entirely of Erica species with flowering periods through most of the year. Winter/spring colour comes from Erica carnea and Erica x darleyensis. The latter are among the largest and most often seen heathers with flowering periods extending to 5 months in some cases. Summer colour comes from Erica species, Daboecia and above all, from Calluna vulgaris. The latter only flower in August but some varieties contribute strong foliage colours for the whole year.

 

Memorial University Botanical Garden

Hi Chris,
Yes we still have a decent heath and heather collection.  We have 42 Calluna cultivars, 27 Erica (carnea, X darleyensis, tetralix, cinerea, X griffithsii, X watsonii, vagans, spiculifolia) and representatives from the genera Daboecia, Cassiope, Phyllodoce, and X Phylliopsis.  Most of these are housed together in our heath/heather garden but a few are spaced about among our Ericaceous border which features over 250 Rhododendron cultivars.
Hope that provides the info you need.
Best regards,
Todd

Chris,
I'm afraid our heather collection is seriously diminished since the 1980s, when it was more significant. Just a smattering of Erica species and cultivars and a few odds and ends, really. Nothing to get excited about.
Good luck with your endeavour.

Champs Hill Garden

This garden has been developed around 3 disused sand quarries since 1960. The woodlands are full of beautiful rhododendrons and azaleas, but the most striking feature is the collection of heathers - over 300 cultivars. Opening times - By appointment for groups of 10 or more with Entrance fee of £4.00 per adult.

 

Cherrybank Gardens

The Bell's Cherrybank Garden on the outskirts of Perth is first and foremost a National Heather Centre, with many examples of this lovely plant. It is the largest collection of heather in the UK and it is not just the wide variety of heathers growing there which is remarkable, it is the large areas devoted to individual types which makes the garden so striking.

St Andrews Botanic Garden

The heath garden contains a wide range of heaths and heathers to give flowering all year round. The smaller species are set against taller plants such as Portugal or Tree Heath, Erica lusitanica which grows to 7 feet high and flowers during the winter. Pinus mugo gives shelter and acts as a screen for other areas of the garden. There are also many small conifers and a group of seven Juniperis communis 'Hibernica', the Irish Juniper, with its tall, upright and tight growth. Dwarf Podocarpus, rhododendrons and willows help create a pleasing year-round effect.

 

Sir Harold Hillier Gardens and Arboretum

The Heather Garden to the east contains, besides a range of heathers, delightful trees and shrubs, giving all year interest of both flower and foliage. The Himalayan birch are represented with white, pink and even dark grey/brown bark; unusual dwarf Ginkgo cultivars show their butter yellow autumn colour; Pinus sylvestris ‘Gold Medal’ turns even more yellow during the cold winter months and you can find more unusual shrubs such as Tetrapanax papyrifera, with its large leaves the size of a small parasol. The heathers themselves change frequently, the oldest plants requiring replanting and renewal every 10 years or so, allowing new and different cultivars to be tried.

 

Threave Garden

Threave Garden is in fact a series of spectacular gardens created over the years by students of the Trust's School of Heritage Gardening.
Open all year, you can enjoy the delights of these gardens in every season - from spring flowers, through summer blooms, autumn colours and winter frosts.
Take time to explore the rock garden, patio garden, secret garden, water features, heathers, conifers and herbaceous perennials.

Cottage Grove Community Hospital Heather Garden

Tucked into a bend in the road near the Cottage Grove Community Hospital is Cottage Grove’s own Heather Garden. Planned and maintained by the Oregon Heather Society (President: Stefani McRae-Dickey
contact person: Ella May Wulff: ewulff@peak.org),
the heather garden was planted in 2004, so the plants are mature and well spread out. Highland Heather can supply the heathers.

 

The Fells

The Fells Heather Bed was originally planted in 1931 under the direction of Clarence Hay. It survived for several decades until in 2005, three days of intense cold followed by three days of 90 degree temperatures killed 95% of the bed. The dead heather was removed, paths added and the bed replanted in 2007-08 with 20 varieties of heather, utilizing a generous grant from the Morton Foundation and volunteer assistance from the Northeast Heather Society.

 

Leonard J. Buck Garden

A number of kinds of heaths and heathers have been planted in the raised peninsula bed next to the parking area in front of the Leonard J. Buck Garden Visitors' Center. These comprise varieties of Calluna and Erica.
In the garden we have Calluna, Erica, and several Erica hybrids.

 

Mendocino Coast Botanical Gardens

The Heath and Heather Collection at Mendocino Coast Botanical Gardens is distinguished by its diversity of species and cultivated varieties beautifully displayed and cared for by its knowledgeable staff. The collection has been accepted after a three-year provisional status in NAPCC during which we strengthened plant records procedures to further enhance this fine collection.

 

Rosewood Gardens

The Heather Garden is very special because it is full of color and bloom throughout the winter months.  
Although heathers are great favorites in English gardens, they are seldom grown in the southeastern states because the climate is felt to be unsuitable. However, with the correct choice of plants; good soil preparation, and an open, sunny site - a beautiful heather garden can be achieved - especially with a combination planting of colorful conifers.   
Plants from the 'Erica' family of heaths have been selected for this garden, and bloom begins in November, peaking in early March.  Although no longer in bloom, the heathers combine with the conifers and barberries to provide colorful foliage and interest throughout the rest of the year.

Heather Garden: Our heather garden is a year-round place of interest; this garden is in bloom each month of the year. The heather/heath have been chosen for their growth patterns from ground cover to tree forms.
