Plant details

This is a lovely, deciduous shrub from Chile with downy, greyish, vine-shaped leaves. Fast-growing, it bears copious numbers of saucer-shaped white flowers. Being half-hardy, it needs to be protected from frosts. Bring plants growing outside on the patio, indoors for winter. Keep them in a cool, light place and water sparingly until the following spring.
