Erica x darleyensis, which includes many hybrids of Erica carnea and Erica erigena, is one of the easiest heathers to grow. It will grow in most soils, and needs little pruning. Erica x darleyensis are often a bit taller than Erica carnea, and more bushy. Buds appear in late Summer or early Autumn, and some flower as early as early Autumn, and continuing blooming right through Winter to late Spring. Erica x darleyensis prefers free-draining, acid soil, but will tolerate slightly alkaline soils. ‘Eva Gold’ sports plenty of red flowers in the middle of winter. The colour of its foliage changes throug the year, from light green in new growth, turning golden yellow in summer, and becoming green in winter.
