The above plant was given to me for mothers day with no information about what type of plant it is. Is it an annual or perenial. Also plant care.
I would appreciate any help in this matter. Thanks

Erica, or heather, plants are perennials and and require full sun and a well-drained soil. You can lightly shear your plant back after the flowers fade. It will grow into a mounded shrub about 2 feet by 2 feet. Hope this information helps.
