Behind the heather

Many people know heather from late summer, when the heather blooms in a beautiful carpet of purple colours. Heather is a common name for a variety of evergreen, low shrubs.

It is a strong and branched shrub that can grow up to 50 cm tall. The flowers are 4-petalled with a lobed calyx and corolla. The fruit is a small, round and hard capsule. A characteristic of the heather family is that the stamens usually have two horn-shaped appendages. The heather grows wild in Denmark and is most common in West and North Jutland and on Bornholm. It is common on heaths, in dunes and in the driest parts of bogs.

The bees collect the heather honey in August, when the heather is in full bloom. Honey collected from heather has an amber colour and a characteristic taste. It is sweet, spicy and powerful in flavour.
