Calluna Care:

  1. Light: This plant prefers sunny or partially shaded locations in the garden. Adequate exposure to sunlight will promote abundant flowering and healthy growth.

  2. Soil: Calluna Vulgaris thrives in acidic, well-drained soils. If your soil is too alkaline, you can improve its acidity by adding peat moss or acid compost at planting.

  3. Watering: During its first year of growth, Calluna Vulgaris requires regular waterings to establish properly. After that, it is a drought tolerant plant and will only need occasional waterings during periods of prolonged drought.

  4. Pruning: Light pruning after flowering will help maintain the plant's compact form and encourage dense, healthy growth. Remove faded flowers and trim long branches to maintain a tidy appearance.

Garden Uses:

  1. Edgings and borders: Calluna Vulgaris is perfect for edging paths, walkways or garden areas, where its dense foliage and colorful flowers will add a touch of charm and color.

  2. Rock gardens: Because of its hardiness and ability to thrive in poor soils, Calluna is an excellent choice for rocky or sloping gardens, where it can cover the soil and control erosion.

  3. Pots and containers: This plant also does well in pots and containers on patios, balconies or decks, where it can add a touch of color and texture to your outdoor spaces.

In short, Calluna Vulgaris is a versatile, hardy and attractive plant that can add great aesthetic value to your garden all season long.
