hile the moors of England and hills of Scotland have served as backdrops in some of the most chilling and brutal literary tales, they have also captured hearts as settings for some of the most romantic ones. And blanketing these moor landscapes in wonderful color is often Calluna vulgaris, commonly known as Scotch heather. An old-world plant with a lengthy history of cultivation and rituals, Scotch heather has come into its own as an equally beautiful and useful landscape shrub
