Growing to 1m tall and covered with thousands of small, urn-shaped, white to pale-pink flowers during Summer, Erica scabriuscula, is splendid. The soft tones of the flowers are strikingly contrasted with the dark green hairy leaves. Tolerating semi shade this is a great plant to try in areas getting morning morning sun. Alternatively plant in a sunny position with sandy acidic soil.
A smoke treatment is necessary to support germination. Please see our Cape Seed Smoke Primer – sold separately.
