Trond, I commented in another topic about your crystal clear photographs these are stunning and they reveal such intricate detail on the rim of each flower... are you using a new camera?  How hardy is this Erica?  Are the flowers fragrant?

Ditto on the exquisite detail, Trond. 

Those stamens really make the flowers jump out!

Thank you guys :D

Mark, as I told, not a new camera but a sunny day for once ;)

This heath has survived for many years in my garden and both the two harsh winters we have had recently. However the tallest stems got damages and I cut the plant down last spring but it resprouted from the base.
I have not discerned any fragrance.
