Plant details

This beautiful flowering shrub is vigorous and easy to grow. It has mid-green leaves which are complemented in late spring and early summer by deep red, funnel-shaped flowers. To prune, cut back shoots to a strong pair of buds just after they have bloomed. Once the plant is established, cut back about a quarter of the older stems to ground level every year to encourage new growth. .
