Kinlochruel is cultivated from a sport found on the double pink Calluna vulgaris 'County Wicklow'. It has an RHS Award of Garden Merit.

Has dark green, almost glossy foliage for most of the year but bronzes over during winter. Bears small, double, pure white flowers.

Flowers August - November

One of the first Calluna cultivars to flower and improves as the season goes on.

Prune the old flowered shoots in Spring after flowering.
