Calluna vulgaris


Trailing plant with long thin stems and reduced, tiny leaves. Small pale pink flowers. Lovely little plant that has taken up residence in one of my pots.

Well, at least it should be winter green. That is a plus :) It is common in Swe to buy them in pots, to plant them around graves, Perhaps you do the same in UK...

I think you're right Tiz! Thanks for the ID - wonder how it ended up in my conservatory.

It reminds me a lot of Calluna vulgaris, but I am not sure how easy it is to cultivate... I hope it leads you somewhere :)
