Calluna Winter Chocolate Heather
This extraordinary heather starts to bloom soft pink flowers in mid to late summer and goes well into fall. The foliage changes color in winter to a reddish chocolate bronze and then to more of an orange red in spring. Colors can vary depending on where it is planted, which makes Winter Chocolate one of a kind. Hardy to -15° F when protected from windchill, you'll want to make sure it has well-draining soil and plenty of sun. Growth habit is low and spreading, and it only reaches about a foot in height.
