A small rounded shrub with aromatic dark green leaves and masses of pink, star shaped flowers. Attracts many nectar feeding insects including butterflies and native bees. Use as a feature shrub, or as a pot plant for balconies, courtyards and patios. Best in cooler areas, as it resents hot dry conditions and winds.
