Common Heath can have white, pink or red flowers. We don’t have any red flowering heath here, but it is found in a reserve about ten minutes drive down the road. Over the years I have found about 3 or 4 plants with deep pink flowers, but predominantly we have white flowering Heath on our property.
In January I found a small Heath plant with pale pink flowers. It was on the edge of bracken-covered ground, growing in moss in the area we call the transition zone – a primarily grassed area between the bush and the dam. At the time I didn’t have my macro lens with me, so I took a quick snap, intending to return. By the time I did, I couldn’t find the plant again. I think I need to invest in a portable GPS and mark significant plants.
