This dainty little shrub bears masses of pink and white flowers in spring, and grows to around a metre and a half tall and wide. It likes a sheltered spot in full sun to dappled shade, and a well drained soil. Lovely for cut flowers, and the narrow leaves have a spicy fragrance. Prune after flowering to keep the plant dense.

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.
