Heather is a wonderful plant with many different foliage colors and growth forms. Heather are evergreen and beautiful in bloom. Plants can be selected to provide bloom throughout the entire year. Heather grows well in our Northwest climate, and once established is drought tolerant, low maintenance and resistant to pests and disease. In the landscape, these small shrubs mix well along a border of woody ornamentals. They are a beautiful addition to any perennial bed and look nice in groups of three or more.
