This aromatic, evergreen shrub produces massed displays of dark crimson blooms from spring to fall. Easy to grow, with a compact, rounded habit and exceptional tolerance for dry conditions. Ideal for mixed borders in waterwise gardens, or displayed in patio containers. Evergreen in mild winter climates.
CareProvide well drained soil. Prune to shape in late winter. Feed in spring with a general purpose fertilizer. After a main flowering flush, trim the plant by half to encourage continued flowering and a denser habit.
