Erica darleyensis, or Darley Heath, is a compact, evergreen shrub native to southwestern Europe. Admired for its profusion of tubular flowers in shades of pink, mauve, or white from late autumn to early spring, this plant is a winter garden standout. It thrives in full sun to partial shade and well-draining, acidic to neutral soil. Moderate watering and light pruning after flowering maintain its shape. Hardy and resilient to pests and diseases. Its versatility makes it ideal for gardens, rockeries, and as ground cover.
