Tree Heathers

Usually known as tree heathers but in practice they may be regarded as garden shrubs. The word ‘tree’ is a misnomer and gives an incorrect impression.  Tree heathers can be damaged by heavy snowfalls but will usually break from the base again. Young plants should be trimmed in the early years to avoid untidy growth, remove up to one third of new growth to keep them bushy.
