Marge, I'm glad you said that.  I thought it was just me.  I keep trying with 
heathers, but don't have much luck.  I do have one that has survived for 
three years and is blooming this year.  It is at the front of a bed that has 
pretty good soil and gets morning sun but I have tried others in similar spots with 
no luck.  I'm glad to know I'm not the only one who has problems with them.  
My neighbor, who died some years ago, used to have handsome ones in her 
extensive rock garden so I know they will survive in the climate.  Auralie  Z5
