General descriptionEvergreen shrub that will put on a colourful display throughout the year. The slender, cream-edged, green leaves form neat mounds, and look very pretty throuhghout the spring and summer. When the temperatures drop they take on a vivid pink flush, which lasts until the spring. It is mainly grown for this decorative foliage, but in summer it also produces clusters of mauve-coloured flowers. Its compact, rounded habit makes it anideal ideal specimen for a pot, but it also looks sensational towards the front of the border.
