Erica Kramers Red is a hybrid heather that has compact form and an upright, bushy habit. Its small, bell-shaped flowers are clear reddish purple and are arranged along stems held at varying angles, which creates textural interest. ‘Kramer’s Red’ blooms from December into April, its flowers smothering the evergreen, needle-like, bronze-green to dark green leaves. It is admired for its outstanding habit, evergreen foliage, and vibrant flowers. Mass plantings of this heather create an excellent ground cover for sunny locations, providing outstanding winter interest. Heathers add interest to winter containers and produce nectar that attracts bees on mild winter days.
