Description:

Fairly sure this is common heather (ling) but it seems very short compared to heather I've seen elsewhere. The biggest it got in the whole area was no more than a 3-4 inches.

What you are seeing ...

... is what heather looks like when it is repeatedly mown or grazed to the ground. I saw some like this earlier today.
