This is a dictionary of Calluna vulgaris or heather of names A through C. Most have photos and descriptions. This is building on the work of the late David Small and his wife Anne of The Heather Society in the UK from the out of print Handy Guide to Heather. I have included varieties found in the US and Canada. 


We have added new varieties over the years to the original work, photos where available and added on to the descriptions of some.


An added valuable feature is the 4 to 5 year mature sizes as measured in our display garden by the Cascade Heather Society. This alone will save you money as we have found the recommended spacing of two feet apart on center is way too close for many of the heaths and heathers.


There are three volumes of Calluna vulgaris—A-C, D-I and J-Z.
