My parents have this growing in their garden and are wondering what it is (the one with pink tips).

Any ideas ?

    It looks like some sort of heather, but it also looks like something else that I can't remember...image

    It looks like heather . But not sure it looks abit exotic?

    I'm certainly no expert on heathers ; there are numerous hybrids . Yours looks very similar to Erica x Watsonii , better known as Watsons Heath .

    I may be totally wrong here ; hope a heather genius gets in touch .

    Where do your parents live?

    Are the stems woody?

    Would it be possible for you to add a clear close up of the flowers?

    I don't believe it is Erica sp which have flowers that hang down.

    Your flowers all point upwards..
