Lady in Red grows to about 18 tall and about the same in width. Remember, the main reason for plant loss with heathers is lack of water, however, the spot must drain quickly--no soggy soil! The love moisture, but must not be overwatered. Another thing to avoid is too much nitrogen fertilizer. So baby your heather plants their first year. It's worth it, since once heathers are established, they are hardy as oaks.

To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.
