Beautiful evergreen blue green foliage. Blooms year round. Needs little to no summer water but in my experience a dust-off with the hose every couple weeks triggers another round of blooming with no adverse affects. Fairly fast growing; from one gallon size to 3 to 4 foot bush in 6 to 8 months if planted in the fall.

This is a lovely plant for dry, hot, arid locations. It tends to loose the lower leaves at the base of the stems and, therefore, looks best with a groundcover around its "ankles." It will grow in sun or part sun but it should be evenly shaded to avoid the plant leaning as it will if one side is always in shade.
