Common names: whorled heath (English). 
Botanical name: Erica verticillata

The whorled heath, Erica verticillata, is a beautiful and hardy plant that was once extinct in the wild, but has been successfully brought back into cultivation and restoration programs. It is native to the Cape Flats of South Africa, where it grows in sandy, acidic soils and attracts various pollinators with its pink, tubular flowers. It is one of the few ericas that can be grown easily from cuttings or seed, and it prefers a sunny, well-ventilated position with regular watering and pruning.
