Mutant of the well-known variety 'Kramer's Rote', 'Eva Gold' possesses all its qualities: rapid growth, rounded and compact shape, long-lasting and abundant red flowers in the middle of winter for an Erica type heather.
The colour of its foliage has the particularity of changing throughout the year, from the light green new growth, turning golden yellow in summer, again becoming pure green in winter.
Attractive individually or in large groups, possibly planted with other heathers, 'Eva Gold' will embellish borders and slopes, as much with its remarkable flowers from November to March, as with its bright yellow colour in summer, which does not fade in the sun. It can also be planted in pots.
Prune after the flowers have finished to keep the plant in the required dimensions.
