|'Marleen' has mid-green foliage and flower buds in white with lilac splashes that remain unfurled. A densely branched, mat-forming evergreen ground cover with long clusters of abundant, showy white or pink urn-shaped flowers into fall. Rich green summer foliage turns bronze-green in winter. Ideal for rock gardens or along walkways. The only true Scotch heather. Beware: dogs seem to favor Scotch heather as much as fire hydrants.
