Isn't Irish Heather lovely this time of year? It is a hearty shrub that flowers for long periods. It's usually sold as a tiny whip of a plant that over time can grow up to a two metre spread, which is what mine have done in the garden. From experience, they don't like to be cut back hard so I've ended up with three monster plants.
Is heather... Irish? Heathers come from many countries, however, I like to call mine Irish even though it could have originated from elsewhere.
|Over the Summer I discovered a wasp nest in this heather shrub (only one sting - boy does it hurt!). I'm hoping the nest won't be back this year - I'll keep you posted.|
