Calluna vulgaris 'Scottish Heather'

Post  Jay Gaydosh on Thu Jul 16, 2009 10:20 pm

Found this heather (and a 2nd one) last year at Walmart. It was sickly and marked down to $.50.



The following photos are of the "tree" today. I plan on repotting to a bonsai pot next Spring.



I'm liking the way the underside of the branches are developing. I still need to open it up a little in the middle:



Pruning of Calluna v. should be limited to after the blossoms shatter just at the base of the newest blossoming growth. Additional pruning would be used to re-shape the tree. Wiring is not recommended.



HOT DOG! I figured out how to post photos!
