A very charming plant of good vigor and compact size. I don't understand why it is not more widely grown here.

This shrub is like a small water fountain of flowers when it blooms, it requires some trimming to keep it in it's space, but little maintainance otherwise. It is drought tolerant, and does well in full to part shade environments. Easy to grow, and wonderful to keep.
