This shrub is deciduous so it will lose all its leaves in autumn, then fresh new foliage appears again each spring.

  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: poor to moderately fertile, well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: May to October
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Masses of pretty pink flowers smother this deciduous, shrubby cinquefoil from late spring to mid-autumn. The small dark green leaves form dense mounds, which makes it useful for informal hedging, or for adding structure to a mixed or herbaceous border. This is a fabulous, long flowering shrub, which will thrive in a hot, sunny position.

  • Garden care: Trim lightly after flowering, cutting the older stems to the base and removing weak, spindly growth. Apply a generous 5-7cm (2-3in) mulch of well-rotted compost or manure around the base of the plant in spring.
