‘Barbara Phillips’

Free-flowering; amethyst (H1) flowers; VI-XI; dark green foliage; road spreading habit; height 31-45cm; spread 61-75cm.

Selected from a bed of about 600 seedlings raised from open-pollinated Daboecia x scotica ‘William Buchanan’ by Peter Davis. Thus its correct name is also Daboecia x scotica and not Daboecia cantabrica (H. Blum unpublished).

Named after Barbara, wife of Brigadier C. F. Lucas-Phillips.
