‘Samtpfötchen’

Dusky rose-pink flowers, VII–VIII; grey-green foliage; height 21–25cm; spread 31–45cm.

Seedling from 'Tina' raised by Lothar Denkewitz (Hamburg, Germany); introduced by L. Denkewitz in 1991. Like 'Riko' this arose from an intended (but unsuccessful) cross between Erica cinerea 'Pink Ice' and Erica tetralix 'Tina'.

The name refers to the velvety corolla.
