Annie Thornton added this to Great Design Plant: Scotch Heather
Distinguishing traits. More than 1,000 cultivars comprise Calluna vulgaris, making nearly every size, color and shape of heather possible. Scotch heather is an evergreen mounding shrub, ranging from dwarf ground covers to midsize shrubs. A dense, upright branching structure, covered year-round in small, scaly leaves, creates a solid, matlike appearance. Only up close can you see how delicate and soft Scotch heather is. Miniature bell-shaped flowers erupt in spikes from summer through fall, in colors ranging from white and pale pink to pink and even lavender or purple. Some flowers will even persist on the stems through winter. The color diversity is also true for its foliage — from soft greens and grays to vivid chartreuse or yellow. If you plant it in full sun, the foliage may develop a red, bronzy or even silvery hue in winter, making for striking seasonal garden interest. New foliage erupts in spring, and some say it's even more spectacular than when the plant is flowering.
