Erica tumida Ker Gawl.

Heath


Family: Ericaceae

Description: 

From Bot. Reg. It requires, like all the congeners from that part of the world, to be cultivated in sandy peat-mould, and sheltered from frost in an airy light greenhouse. We have seen no specimens of it much above a foot high, and even such are as yet very rare.

History: 

From Bot. Reg. Introduced, we understand, about three or four years ago by Mr. Niven, from the Cape of Good Hope.

First published in the Botanical Register.Published in Bot. Reg. 1: 65 in 1815.
