A much sought-after, but rarely offered, fast growing shrub from Chile with vine-like leaves. Copious numbers of large, pale to deep mauve flowers mainly in spring and early summer, but it can flower all summer long if happy.
Benefits from some shelter, so against a warm wall or fence is ideal.
This really is a super flowering shrub.
Received the RHS Award of Garden Merit.
