Heather Deliciosa is one of the many Erica
varieties found in the Western Cape floral kingdom commonly
called Fynbos. It is the smallest of the world’s six
plant kingdoms yet it is the richest region of floral biodiversity.
The flowers are gathered on the farm Grootvadersbosch, along
the lower reaches of the Langeberg Mountains, in the Heidelberg
district. In spring we strip the flowers from the bushes so
allowing the bush to remain standing to produce flowers next
year. The area is so vast that after our harvesting the amount
we need, there is no visible difference causing no impact
on the ecology of the area.
The flowers dry naturally and are sealed
in air tight containers to retain their natural deep pink
