Positive Todd_Boland On Nov 24, 2004, Todd_Boland from St. John's, NL (Zone 5b) wrote:

Another choice rockery shrub, the origin of this plant is rather obscure. Some book claim it to be a variety of D. collina, others say it is a hybrid between D. ollina and D. cneorum. Regardless, the evengreen shrub produces the main flush of rose-pink flowers in late spring then a secondary flush in mid-summer. Foliage is quite dark green.
