Heath likes it sunny

Heath offers an enormous richness of color and many variants for fall and winter. She loves open and exposed spots and can never get too much sun. Heath grows best in moist, well-drained, acidic soil. If the soil is right, Heath is a very rewarding, long-lasting garden plant with a blooming guarantee and without having made a lot of work. If you like Heath, you should prepare a special flowerbed that ensures acidic, humus-rich soil. Here you can combine summer heather (Calluna) - it blooms in August-September - and winter Heath (Erica) - it blooms in February to April. You can match rhododendrons, azaleas, japonica, leucothoes and other ericaceous plants.
