We love this addition to our garden. A near constant bloomer loved by hummingbirds and butterflies. No bugs or disease issues. Just a lovely compact tree. We are in zone 9b/10a and it has tolerated heat and cold equally well.

This bush puts on a show year round here in zone 9b and the hummingbirds absolutely love it! It recovers well if allowed to get too dry. It would probably get much taller if it wasn't underneath the fruit trees, where it gets afternoon shade after full sun all morning. The heat doesn't bother is at all.
