Erica: General information

Very widespread in Europe, also as a wild plant, it is cultivated in the garden, but is increasingly used also in outdoor compositions or in bunches of flowers, especially dried ones; the small spikes of colorful bellflowers, very persistent, and the linear leaves, of a very bright color, make it very suitable also for making centerpieces or decorations and garlands. In white it has the meaning of protection, admiration and hope that dreams and desires come true; in the pink-lilac color instead takes on the meaning of solitude.
