Calluna vulgaris - Native Wild Heather
Calluna vulgaris - Native Wild Heather is the dominant heath plant in many parts of the UK. It has a wide range and is widely distributed throughout Europe as far North as the Faroe Islands.
Mauve pink flowers bloom from July to September which create a colourful scene in the countryside.
Native heather is an important source of food for butterflies and bees with hives often located on heather moorland in the Summer where the bees can easily obtain the nectar from the heather flowers to produce a very distinctive and much sought after ‘heather honey’.
The majority of the plants that we supply are used for heathland restoration projects in the countryside or on golf courses.
