Erica umbellata

CHIRUELA

SC05336

This small heather grows in acid soils. The main characteristic that distinguishes it from other heathers is its terminal inflorescence in the form of an umbel. It lives on poor and bare siliceous soils, often sandy, and in a somewhat humid and mild climate. It grows on bare soils, in open or dwarf heaths, thickets, cleared forests and sandy areas near the coast, on acid soils from sea level to 1500 m altitude.

Planting information:

The genus Erica presents a set of germination inhibitors that reduce its success in seed propagation. The recommended pre-germinative treatment for this species is to place the seed in a humid environment, in the dark and at a temperature of 15ºC (12 hours) and 20ºC (12 hours), obtaining a germination close to 60%.
