Description

An excellent background shrub for dry perennial beds, mixed shrub borders, or on banks or slopes. The pale lavender hibiscus-like flowers with purple throats bloom profusely throughout summer. The maple-like gray-green leaves compliment the blooms. This Mediterranean shrub is large, rangy and irregular but can be clipped or sheared for a more formal or dense shape.

Plant care

Thrives in light, fertile soils with excellent drainage and low moisture. Water regularly during first growing season to establish root system; once established, reduce frequency. Prune lightly after first bloom flush to promote continued flowering and encourage dense new growth. Hard prune annually to shape and rejuvenate. Feed in early spring.
