False Heath Overview

Also known as false heath, the genus Fabiana contains around 15 evergreen shrubs commonly grown for their profuse, heath-like foliage which is reduced to needle-like, overlapping leaves and for their attractive bell to tubular-shaped flowers. Blooms are commonly white, pink or yellow-orange pastel shades. Some species are commonly cultivated in horticulture.
