Hardiness level Green
A compact hardy shrub with flowers that are pink in bud but opening to a mottled pinky orange. Broader than they are tall, they will grow to 1 x 1.25 metres.
Best positioned in dappled shade in acid soil, moist but free draining.
N.B. When clipping several plants with the same tool, have a bucket containing a 5% bleach solution and swish your blades around for 30 seconds between plants to sterilise them. This will help avoid the chance of cross contamination of disease.
As with all woody plants, plant high, exposing as much of the taper at the base of the trunk as possible. Allowing soil to accumulate round the base of a tree can be fatal. Keep very well watered when first planted.
