"Calluna prefers light acid soils. It will grow in any lime free soil but growth is less vigorous in heavier soils. Calluna will perform better in open sunny situations, this being particularly true for those exhibiting foliage colour variations."

Some heathers besides having flowers have foliage colours that change from 1 season to the next season in the UK -

  • Spring (March, April, May),
  • Summer (June, July, August),
  • Autumn (September, October, November) and
  • Winter (December, January, February).


The Shrub Heathers Comparison Gallery provides comparison pages of the:-

  • 18 flower colours with flower and flower stalk as shown in the menu table above,
  • 18 flower colours with flower and flower stalk in each of the months that heather flowers,
  • 7 foliage colours with foliage stalk and form per season as shown in the menu table above, and
  • Each of the Heather Cultivar Groups with flowers


THIS COMBINATION OF FOLIAGE COLOUR CHANGE CAN BE USED IN YOUR GARDEN DESIGN TO AID DIFFERENT GROUNDCOVER FOLIAGE COLOURS IN DIFFERENT SEASONS, together with the months of flower buds before flowering and the post months of seedheads.
 


"Handy Guide to Heathers - Descriptions & Suppliers of over 1000 varieties" by David & Anne Small. Published in 1992 by Denbeigh Heather Nurseries in the UK. ISBN 0-9519160-0-9. It provides a handy reference to descriptions of heathers in the genera Andromeda, Bruckenthalia, Calluna, Daboecia and Erica which are commercially cultivated in Britain, Europe and North America. The information has very largely come from the work of the Heather Society on producing an International Register of all heather names irrespective of whether they are in commercial use or not.

...............

Heather Kavanagh and Chris Garnons-Williams took photos of the 1000 cultivar heather collection at the Royal Horticultural Society Garden at Wisley. Between us we found 848 of those 1000 different heathers, which we took photos of in each of the 4 seasons for each heather:-

  • Heather took 11,687 photos of these heathers between August 2012 to October 2014, while Chris took photos of other plants in that RHS garden at Wisley during each day that we visited together.
  • Chris took 3764 photos of these heathers between October 2014 to May 2015
  • Noting the problems we encountered as shown in
    • COMMENTS page with more examples of heathers with invalid Plant Labels in
    • Label moved from elsewhere Page , we are concerned as to the validity of the identity of the photos that we took. Each time that heather was photoed, its label was the first picture taken. If there was 1000 different heathers there, then the labels of 152 had been removed and thus those heathers were mixed with other heathers. I have taken the decision that as long as the name on the label matched the description of the foliage/flowers of the heather by the label, I would accept that label identity.
       

When I see Valid Label Moved elsewhere Number 2 in the Label moved from elsewhere Page , I have finally realised that in that instance I am assuming that since the heather description appears to match the other photos for August 2013 and October 2014, that that label is actually valid for those photos. Considering that in the first 12 cultivars that we took photos of that I have found problems with 2 of them, then how many more out the 848 or the mythical over 1000+ will I find problems with?

I am now going to ignore all 15,451 photos taken between August 2012 to May 2015, since I cannot validate their plant identity. This means that as of May 2015, I do not believe that any of the heathers in that heather collection can have their plant labels validated to the plants alongside.

I heard a rumour in 2015 that there was a Heather Nursery who would take over the Heather Collection and put it back into proper order minus its Horsetail/Mare'stail infestation. This would improve the moral of the RHS member volunteer maintenance staff.

I would suggest that each of the heather beds have all their heathers removed from them and burnt. Then the bed would be carefully weeded and a mixture of liquid rotted cow manure/tree shreddings laid to a 3 inch (7.5 cms) depth of mulch. 4 weeks later the turf from a new heather bed in the same field to be placed on the old heather bed and when the bed has been covered with the turf, then it is rotovated to mix the remainder of the mulch and the old turf together, before being rolled firm and irrigated once a day for 3 weeks. The turf will come up and when more that 2 inches (5 cms) high, be cut down to 1.5 inches (3.5 cms) and a week later to 1 inch of height and kept at that height during the growing season (I rotovated the old lawn in the 'lawn area for easier mowing for father' up and down, side to side and diagonally, before raking it to become level. It grew and became a new lawn within 2 months - see Case 4a- Garden Uses Separated Page). The new heather bed would have the same cow manure/tree shreddings applied to the same mulch depth of 3 inches (7.5 cms), then 4 weeks later it would be rotavated and 1 wekk later planted with the required heathers in clumps of 3 to odd number with 12 inch (30 cms) separation between heather clump width expected after 3 years growth. Each heather clump properly labelled, photoed and inserted into a properly laid out plan, so that if the plant label got changed, then it could be replaced with the valid plant label in the future. Perhaps the RHS might use the same system as Denver Botanic Gardens with its 133 Gardens and Features who have given me permission to use their photos on this website.This could be combined with the very full detailed description system similar to that of Missouri Botanical Garden.

Since I cannot get validated photos from heather nurseries and I cannot rely on my own photos, then I see little point in continueing the work on the remaining 836 heathers in these 9 galleries.
If you take a photo of a heather plant from a distance by useing or not using zoom, then you will find that the detail of each leaf - 2mm in length - will not be in focus, nor will the small flower. I used my Canon within 2-4 inches from the plant in order for those items to be in autofocus. This will also tell you whether the overall foliage colour is only due to a very few leaves on the terminal end of the foliage stem or along its entire length. Then, that is usefull info for the flower arranger, whereas the more general picture is useful as the general effect for the householder in their garden.
The book detailed above provides most of the description data for these heathers.
