RE:Erica darleyensis
I purchased 6 @ $14.98 ea. Much to my dismay I found conflicting info on the labels(after being planted)This concerns the zones as related to the growing season in ME. I assumed that the plants H. Depot offers are suitable for our local climate? Please tell me if these will survive?

Erica is hardy in USDA zones 6-8. Portions of Maine are in zone 6 and the plants will survive there without winter protection. In the rest of the state you may be able to provide winter protection for your new heathers. A rose cone will protect your new plants. Enjoy!
