Soft lavender blossoms cover this low growing heather from August through September. The colorful foliage begins a soft salmon then becomes a delightful blend of gold with pink tips, and in the fall, orange, and red. Grows to about 12-20" tall by 18-24" wide.

A delightful melding of warm colors, 'Winter Chocolate' is a year-round standout in our Heather garden. Radiantly cloaked with chartreuse, chocolate and golden hues for winter, spring's new growth brings creamy salmon red tips. As the days grow longer, the foliage coloring broadens to a pleasing range of oranges, pinks and yellows, toned by bright greens. As if this isn't enough, soft lavender blossoms just about smother the plant in late summer.
