A dwarf-growing, semi-deciduous shrub with dark green foliage and bearing mauve flower bracts from late Spring and through to Autumn. Happily grows in either full sun or partial shade where soils are suitably moist, fertile and free-draining. Ideal for smaller gardens, growing in containers, topiary work or for planting out to create low-growing hedges. Can be grown in coastal locations.
Grows to between 1.2m and 1.5m both in height and width.
