Upright spikes of mauve-pink flowers, highly attractive to bees, appear from July to November. The leaves turn first gold, then red in winter.  This colourful Scots heather is a relative of  the native ling that once colonized a quarter of Britain. It looks fantastic planted alongside other heathers with contrasting foliage or flowers.Garden care: Incorporate lots of composted pine needles or leaf-mould into the planting hole. In March or April cut back the flowered shoots to within 2.5cm (1in) of the old growth.
