Sizing guide

Erica 'Showtime' is a vibrant, evergreen shrub known for its profuse and colorful blooms. This compact variety typically grows to about 30-45 cm in height and spread, making it ideal for borders, rock gardens, and containers. It produces masses of tubular, bright pink flowers from late winter to spring, providing a striking display against its fine, needle-like green foliage.

To grow Erica 'Showtime,' plant it in a sunny to partially shaded location with well-draining, acidic soil. It thrives in sandy or peaty soils and is drought-tolerant once established. Regular watering is necessary during the establishment period and during dry spells, but avoid waterlogging. Mulching helps retain soil moisture and suppress weeds. Light pruning after flowering helps maintain its shape and encourages bushier growth.

'Showtime' is perfect for adding a splash of color to garden beds, borders, and containers, and it attracts pollinators such as bees and butterflies. Its low-maintenance and drought-tolerant nature make it an excellent choice for various garden settings.
