Plant of the Week:

MEDITERRANEAN PINK HEATHER

We're happy to share our plant of the week -- Mediterranean Pink Heather. This mounding, evergreen shrub establishes quickly for a fine, dense ground cover or border. It offers terrific winter color with lavender-pink flowers that last through early spring. Mediterranean Pink brings you tough little flowers in the winter when not much else is blooming. Once it stops flowering, this plant still offers a beautiful evergreen foliage that can be enjoyed in all seasons. To plant this in the ground, select a sunny to partially sunny spot. Dig a hole 3x the width of the container and set the top of the root ball slightly above ground level. Then combine the planting mix and soil and fill it in around the plants’ roots. This plant needs a lot of water, especially when newly planted. Follow a regular watering schedule during the first growing season to establish a deep, extensive root system and then, sit back and enjoy this year-round beauty!
