Q.What Is This Shrub Called, The Photo Of Which Is Attached ?

Zone Eastbourne, Langney cemetary | Anonymous added on October 15, 2021 | Answered

I bought what I thought were 6 small tubs of heather about 3 years ago, of which this was one, to go onto my family grave. Eventually this one became a huge and beautiful shrub like a golden globe and took over the whole space and looked perfect. Now, after many months of blooming I have clipped it a bit as it seemed in need but I wondered if it needs taking back right down to the really woody part now. The photo was taken when it looked its best.

That is a beautiful plant. It would be difficult to pinpoint the exact cultivar of Scotch heather, but there is a Calluna vulgaris 'Gold Haze' that looks very similar. It is recommended to cut them back after flowering.
