'Boskoop' is an excellent example of one of the 'changeable' Heathers. In summer, rich golden mounds of foliage serve as an excellent backdrop for sprays of lavender-mauve flowers. With the onset of cooler weather, the whole plant takes on tones of orange and red, lasting into the new year, when it returns to its golden self. Named after the Dutch village, where it was found.
