A very pretty flowering shrub, that will add late spring and early summer colour to the border with its pretty clusters of pink and white star-shaped flowers. These are sought-after by pollinating insects including bees and may have a light scent. Once established it is quite easy to look after and as it does not get too big, it can be grown in a large patio pot.
- Garden care: To encourage a bushy habit tip-prune young plants, either by pinching off the tips of soft shoots or by reducing long leading or lateral shoots by a third. Immediately after flowering, cut back the stems that have flowered to one or two healthy buds.
