yes they are cute :-) :nod: also found here as well as the common heather, varieties deep pinks and there is a cross leaved heath -erica tetralix,:nod: but to date have not really searched for them

well, in Sweden both Calluna vulgaris and Erica tetralix are very common and range all over Sweden. Erica tetralix
is more of a bog plant then C. vulgaris, though both can be found in wet-dry habitats. This one on the other hand is only found in the mountains in northern Sweden.

So I didn't think this one would be found on the british isles, but on the other hand - islands can be quite mountain-ish when it comes to habitat. XD

:nod: thanks for the information, yes Bell heather erica cinerea can be found here in the north west highlands of Scotland, it prefers a drier location than calluna vulgaris, can find it dry knolls on the peat :-)

ah, just to straight things out, this (moss bell heather) isn't Bell heather, erica cinerae. :meow:
We don't have E. cinerea in Sweden, so I've never seen it!

'cassiope hypnoides' so does it have a common name? I don't think it grows here on the north coast of Scotland :( its a very pretty plant

Yes, Moss bell heather, in contrast to Bell heather. :)


btw, I just found out that it's now called Harrimanella hypnoides.
