Small, rounded native shrub growing to 1m x 1m not at all out of place in the perennial garden. Broad light green leaves and large pink star flowers throughout the year. Prefers well drained moist soils in part shade but will grow in full sun if root run kept cool with mulch. Summer water may be required in drier districts. Suitable for containers. If preferred prune after flowering to promote dense bushy habit.
