Wednesday Vignette - Summer Heather
On this late Wednesday in July, we are enduring another heatwave here in the Portland, Oregon greater region. I was outside, braving the furnace and took a second look at my calluna vulgaris 'Firefly'.
Wow, this plant! It's really loving the heat. It is in full bloom and with the hot temps, the petite blossoms have turned a much deeper shade of purple than in years prior.

The chartreuse foliage is quite striking in contrast. It's an amazing plant, with true, year round interest.
Not too shabby of a find on a hot summer's night.
