Common Hearth

Epacris impressa is a shrub known commonly as Common Hearth. It has flowers that grow throughout the year, especially within spring. Birds are attracted to these tubular and light pink flowers. The leaves are small and spear shaped.

The common hearth grows in full sun with well drained and acidic soil. It can grow in sand, loam and clay. There is some adaptability with common hearths but it can be difficult to grow. Transplanting is sadly difficult with this plant.
