This long-flowering evergreen shrub has been carefully trained and clipped over the years to create an elegant ½ standard. It is currently housed in a 5lt plastic pot and has a 60cm clear stem beneath a 20cm head. Its silhouette will add a super-stylish touch when added to the aqua coloured glazed ceramic pot. They are reliable and easy to grow and have lustrous, dark green leaves and flattened heads of pink-flushed, white flowers throughout winter. The frost-proof pot it comes with measures 31cm high x 33cm in diameter.
- Garden care: Remove any over-vigorous shoots that ruin the shape in early summer, cutting them back to within the plant's outline. Keep well watered during the warmer months and feed with a general purpose fertiliser from mid-spring to midsummer.
