A charming small shrub that flowers all year round, with good flushes of flowers in spring and summer. A really useful plant for half shady and moist areas, and flowers well in these situations. It also does well in coastal gardens. It has small leaves and a dense growth habit, forming a nice mounded plant, but needs consistent moisture to be at its best. It can be pruned lightly in spring or summer to shape, but is attractive without trimming if desired. Suits cool temperate to sub tropical areas, and tolerates medium frosts.

WHERE TO GET YOUR PLANT
Once you have found the plant that looks right for you, the next step is where to buy it.
Most nurseries stock a good range of plants, but due to space and supplies, they may not always have the plant that you are searching for in stock. If they don’t, they may be able to order it in for you if you request it.
Specialist nurseries are also able to give great advice, and if they don’t have the plant you have planned on, they can often suggest alternatives that will also work well for you.
