One of many cultivars of this hybrid heath, this low evergreen shrub bears sprays of small purplish-pink bell-shaped flowers over many weeks in winter and early spring. The small, needle-like, whorled leaves are medium green.
'Mediterranean Pink' prefers well-drained, slightly acidic soil, full sun, and protection from drying winds. It accepts neutral soil and short periods of drought, and is one of the most heat-tolerant heaths. It works well in the rock garden, or as an edging or ground cover.
