A fast growing medium sized shrub with deeply divided dark green foliage. It has profuse large pink flowers all year round, making it a great source of food for nectar loving wildlife as well as a lovely garden feature. Can be used for cut flower use too.
Does well in most areas of Australia except for arid, and flowers best in a sunny spot. Grows to 3 to 4 metres high, and responds well to pruning, so good for screening and informal hedges. Feed in warm months with a good all purpose or native fertiliser.
