Glorified in Scottish folklore, poetry, and songs, heather is already a part of local culture. The often severe conditions of Scotland do not scare off the enduring beautiful plant, and it thrives equally well in damp and dry climates, survives cool temperatures, and thrives in infertile soils. This perennial evergreen shrub is found in Scottish wetlands, pine, birch, and oak forests, in heathlands, dry fields and large open areas. The long-lasting heather blooming season begins in July and continues until late November.
