Flowers heliotrope (H12), single; IX-X; foliage bright yellow in summer, with bright yellow young growth; habit upright, bushy; height 30cm; spread 30cm across after 4 years. Selected from mixed seedlings, raised from open-pollinated plants. “No other Calluna cultivar as this combination of heliotrope flowers and soft yellow foliage.” Judy loved heather and she loved Sweden. She deserved to be commemorated by a beautiful Swedish plant.

Flowering is very early in the season, dying off before many of my “normal” Calluna come into flower; and spring tips develop into bright red branches until the appearance of buds signals a return to more normal dark green. Plants attain about 20cms tall x 40cms across after three years.
Named ‘Julie Bradbury’ in recognition of the very helpful Brentwood Farm Nursery at Charlesworth. Unfortunately, the nursery no longer deals with heathers, having grown a couple of dozen cuttings for me, so it looks as though it will not be developed, the only plants being in my own garden and that of a neighbour.
