These amazing heather earth plants

Heather earth plants love acid soils and cannot accommodate garden soil, unless you live in privileged regions like Sologne or Brittany whose soil composition is perfectly suited to them. Undisputed kings and queens of heather gardens, hydrangeas and azaleas are the subject of all the care of breeders who, each year, create new varieties.

Azalea again


Globe Planter ** Azalea Encore Empress Conies ** This azalea is all the more interesting as it flowers three times a year. Empress Conies exists in single or double variety.

Leucothoe


Globe Planter ** Leucothoe White Water ** A multitude of small elongated leaves variegated with green and cream are adorned with cream-colored clusters in season. Astonishing, in the heart of winter, the foliage turns to dress in purple.

Magical Moonlight

Camellia


Nurseries Sterviniou ** Camellia sasanqua Showa No Sakae ** You have to wait until autumn to see this splendid fuchsia camellia bloom. But your patience will be rewarded by the carpet of semi double flowers with which this bush will adorn itself then.

Winter heather
