This is an attractive shrubby Erica to six feet tall that produces a profusion of cup shaped, light-pink to rosy-purple flowers in late fall and into winter. The bloom is so profuse that this heather will often smother itself in blooms so that the foliage is almost completely hidden by a veil of pink. Use this plant in mixed shrub borders or as a specimen plant.
