  1. Daboecia

    Daboecia, St. Dabeoc's heath, is a small genus of flowering plants in the family Ericaceae, containing two evergreen shrubs, closely related to the genus Erica. They are native to cliffs and heathland in western Ireland, western France, northwestern Spain, Portugal and the Azores. They produce urn-shaped flowers in shades of white, pink and red. Daboecia differ from European Erica species in having a substantially larger corolla. The leaves are always alternate in Daboecia, never whorled. The generic name comes from the Irish Saint Dabheog. Like Erica, Daboecia are calcifuges, but will tolerate neutral soils.
