Pink (H8) flowers darkening to mauve (H2), with shell-pink (H16) sepals, XII–V, very floriferous; mid-green foliage; height 10–15cm; spread 31–45cm.

Seedling, perhaps a cross between Erica carnea 'King George' and Erica carnea 'Springwood Pink'; introduced by 1971.

Named after a well known horticulturist Randle Blain Cooke (1881–1973).
