This lovely, late flowering shrub is excellent for a sheltered, sunny, shrub or mixed border. Flourishing in moist, but well-drained soil, it has one limitation - the new foliage doesn't appear until late spring. Supplied in approx 3 litre conatiners, around 40-50cms tall.

After pruning apply a generous 5-7cm mulch of well-rotted garden compost or manure around the base of the plant. Once established it requires little if any regular pruning
