This is a South American shrub, and a good choice if you want something completely different because of its marvellous midsummer show of individual purple-red flowers with white edging. Growth is solid and bushy, with grey-green leaves. It isn't totally hardy, and needs the warmth of a sheltering wall with excellent drainage. It is also useful in coastal gardens because it tolerates salt, and can be grown as a protective hedge.

When should I prune this plant?
royduke .. Here in NZ we prune after fruiting in the winter. They fruit in warm areas in late summer/early autumn. They fruit at around 3 years old if in a temperate zone.
