This entry has yet to be reviewed and approved by L2G editors.
A hybrid of winter heath and Irish heath, Furzey heath is a low evergreen shrub bearing clusters of small, deep rose-pink bell-shaped flowers over many weeks in winter and early spring. The small, needle-like, whorled leaves are dark green, tipped with pink in the spring.
This plant prefers well-drained, slightly acidic soil, full sun, and protection from drying winds. It tolerates neutral soil and short periods of drought. It is often used in the rock garden, or as an edging or ground cover.
