Amethyst (H1) flowers, VI–VIII; dark green foliage; bushy; height 21–25cm; spread 31–45cm.

Plants with this name were in cultivation in USA by 1943, but whether the present clone is in any way connected must be doubtful. Note Waitz (1805) had Erica cinerea var flora violaceo, but that name is invalid and is most unlikely to have been the origin of the name employed in the 1940s.

Name is from Latin violaceus = violet
