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.
