White Heather is associated with good luck. Legend has it that, in the 3rd century, Malvina (daughter of Ossian) received a spray of purple heather from a messenger on behalf of her betrothed who died in battle. When Malvena's tears fell on the purple heather in her hand, it turned white. The magical occurrence prompted her to declare that although it was the symbol of her sorrow, white heather would bring good fortune to all who find it.
