Albus Dumbledore: "Professor Dippet had that ling planted when he was Headmaster."
Cornelius Fudge: "Oh, yes, indeed, indeed."
Albus Dumbledore and Cornelius Fudge in June 1993.[src]

Ling (also known as heather) is a low-growing shrub that can be distinguished by the purple flowers it sprouts in late summer. It grows abundantly on heathland and moorland throughout Europe.[1]

Armando Dippet had ling and strawberry planted on the grounds of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry during his time as Headmaster.[2]
