  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: moist but well-drained, moderately-fertile, neutral to acid soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: April to July
  • Hardiness: frost hardy (may need winter protection)

    The soft pink, star-shaped flowers, which have a light scent, appear in soft clusters above the lustrous, evergreen foliage, creating a very pretty effect in late spring or early summer. Grow this sun-loving shrub at the base of a south-facing wall where it has protection from cold, drying winds for best effect.

  • Garden care: Incorporate lots of well-rotted organic matter into the planting hole when planting. After flowering lightly prune any shoots that spoil the symmetry of the plant.
