Replacement for heather in the South
I'm much more comfortable in the Conifer forum and this is probably an old question. So please be patient with me.
I'm in the process of putting in a large new conifer bed and trying to imitate many of those gorgeous northern and European conifer gardens who all use heathers for whispy color and beauty mixed amongst the conifers.
I'm in Oklahoma.....hot humid Oklahoma. Asking those that specialize in the plant I wish I could grow, what would you say is the best or closest appearing replacement to heather for us here in the south?
