Heliotrope (H12) flowers, VII–IX; dark grey-green foliage; loose spreading habit; height 21–25cm; spread 46–60cm.

The history of this clone is not known, despite statements to the contrary; there is absolutely no evidence that it was wild-collected near Clifden, County Galway, Ireland, by J. Mackay in 1846. Re-named Erica x praegeri 'Connemara' in 1969. Re-named Erica x stuartii 'Connemara' in 1979.

Named after the region in western County Galway, Ireland, where this was allegedly collected.
