Fast growing tall dense shrub 2-5 x 3-5m. Attractively lobed foliage with burgundy new growth. Long flowering with pinky red toothbrush flowers throughout Winter, Spring and into Summer. Grows in full sun or part shade in well drained soils but will tolerate occasionally wet sites. Tolerant of coastal conditions, frost and dry periods. A great screening plant it can also be hedged and makes a great bird habitat. We recommend supplemental Summer water in hot dry areas.
