Erica Golden Sport Heath
The bright foliage of Erica Golden Sport features dazzling hues of deep gold, coral orange, amber and red. During the summer and fall, this special heath is adorned with magenta-pink to lavender flowers to create a unique spectacle. It has plenty of character with its swooping stems and clump growth habit.
Golden Sport does great in full sun but can tolerate some shade, especially in the afternoon if it is extra hot out. Like other heaths and heathers, you will definitely want to plant it in well-draining soil. This great shrub is excellent for rock gardens, accent growing, containers, slopes, edges and beds. Hardy to -10°F when protected from windchill.
