The best show on this choice heather is not the flowers, but the foliage, which is a nice light green with pink tips most of the year. This photo was taken in our garden when 'Mrs. Pat' was not in bloom. The flowers are a pale lavender and appear from August through October. Easily damaged by windburn.
