Unforgettable Fall and Winter Color!

As the temperature drops, the foliage blazes!
One of the best plants for winter interest is this classic Scotch Heather, highly prized wherever it is grown and now available at last to our customers! 'Blazeaway' is perfectly named, for this foliage is yellow from spring until fall, when it turns orange, scarlet, and deep red and remains that way all winter long!

It's impossible to find this little shrub "out of bloom," because even though it DOES offer attractive lavender flowers in late summer, the foliage is as bright and pretty as in blossom. New spring leaves arise with flushes of orange and red, a little preview of the color show to come. The yellow base remains all summer, even in hot climates. And then, with the first breath of cold autumn weather, comes the blazing color!

Just 12 inches high and about 18 inches wide, 'Blazeaway' makes a neat little planting in any sunny to very lightly shaded spot. (It needs sunshine to bring out the best color.) The habit is upright, dense, and spreading, and benefits from a good hard prune in late winter each year. Other than that, there is no maintenance needed to this hardy little marvel. Deer leave it alone, and it has a naturally symmetrical shape that is pleasing without looking constrained. What more can you ask?!

An excellent choice for a meadow garden or other open planting site, 'Blazeaway' is a good landmark plant in any setting. Enjoy finding just the right spot for this attention-getter! Zones 4-8.
