Clockwise:  Golden is Erica cinerea 'Constance’, top is Erica vagans ‘Pyrenees Pink’, far right is Erica vagans ‘Mrs. D. F. Maxwell’  (picture above right)


We have found that Erica vagans perform well in shade.  These get only a few hours of sunlight per day.  The golden Erica cinerea blooms and grows poorly in this situation compared to sunnier sites.  Its foliage color stays lime green in shade rather than turning its bright golden color in summer.
