Allegro Scotch Heather is a low, bushy shrub that forms a spiky mound about 18 inches tall and 2 feet across. The tiny dark-green leaves cover the branching stems, and from August to October the branches are covered in many small dark red blooms that give it a unique smokey look. Ideal for poor sandy soil and acid conditions it is perfect for slopes, among rocks, on retaining walls and with shrubs like dwarf pine and junipers, as well as with many sun-loving perennials like catmint and sages.

  • Charming bushy groundcover
  • Spikes of red-purple flowers from August to October
  • Grows well even in sandy and acidic soils
  • Attractive to bees and butterflies
  • Resistant to drought, salt-spray, and deer

Allegro Scotch Heather should be planted in full sun or light partial shade and in acidic soil. It tolerates poor, sandy soils and very acidic ones, but will not grow in alkaline soils. It can be grown in pots if you don’t have suitable garden soil. Once established it is drought resistant and it tolerates salt-spray too. Pests, diseases and deer leave it alone, and it just takes a simple spring trim to keep it looking perfect.
