An uncommon variety but a very nice one. The spring colours show a pink flush on velvety, medium-sized rosettes. I would say that 'Heike' is one of 'the early ones', developing spring colours earlier than most.
The colour fades to a shade of green in summer as many do but good spring colour, earliness, attractive shape and good growing habits means 'Heike' easily earns its place in our collection.
