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.

All our plants are supplied in at least 9x10cm pots. Plants in this size pot establish quickly in the garden and often outpace plants planted in bigger pots at the same time. We do not sell 'plug plants' because those need to be grown on before planting. Our potted plants can be planted immediately, unless otherwise noted, or you can leave them in their pots until you are ready to plant. We grow everything we sell ourselves, in our nursery in the Buckinghamshire countryside.
