Calluna Dark Star is a compact evergreen shrub with a spreading habit that has upright stems bearing semi-double, crimson to bright pink flowers from late summer into autumn.

Calluna, the same as an Erica but different. Visually very similar. Botanically a little bit different. You may have heard the term ‘Heather’ or ‘Heath’ this is them. 

Calluna flowers from February to October ( depending on variety ) and often through winter  when there is not a lot else flowering in the garden. The Bees are very appreciative as they provide nectar and pollen in the winter when not a lot else is about for them. 

As for easy care, Callunas are pretty much as easy going as you get. Once they are established they are drought tolerant. Just keep them weeded and they will maintain a compact tight habit and provide you with mass of flower year after year. 

They like the sun, are very winter hardy and can tolerate both the coast and inland spots. They work well planted on mass.
