  • Soil: fertile, humus-rich, moist but well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: average

    The lipstick-red spidery flowers put on a great show from late winter and early spring, particularly as they are accentuated by the burgundy coloured foliage. This is a decorative evergreen shrub, that offers a dazzling contrast to the greens in a mixed or shrub border. Happiest in partial shade, it also makes an excellent understorey plant in a woodland setting.

  • Garden care: Requires minimal pruning, but lightly trim after flowering to encourage bushy growth.
