This petite, perennial shrub features small leaves and bicolour blooms in white and red, gracing your garden with its charm throughout an extended flowering season. Retaining its evergreen allure in frost-free climates, it gracefully transitions to deciduous in colder regions.
USE IN: Ideal for cottage-style gardens, mixed beds and borders, wildlife gardens, as well as containers and tubs.
PLANTING: Choose a location with full sun to partial shade, ensuring well-draining, nutrient-rich soil. Apply mulch and maintain regular watering until the plant establishes itself, typically within 12 weeks. Adequate watering is essential, especially during dry periods.
CARE: Post-flowering, trim lightly to stimulate fresh growth and encourage repeated blooms. In midsummer, prune back significantly during its brief respite from blooming. Provide a springtime boost with a slow-release fertilizer, and supplement with eco-seaweed during the summer heat. Mulch generously to safeguard the rootball during winter.
HEIGHT & WIDTH: Compact in size, reaching 1 meter in height and width.
YOUR PLANTS: Delivered as tube-stock plants, these robust young specimens boast new roots, ensuring rapid establishment in your garden.
