This is a bush that grows up to 3M. Vivid royal purple flowers born over a long period, over lush evergreen velvet leaves.
The flower colour alone would justify its inclusion in many gardens. In Karin’s Garden its flowers come in flushes over about six months of the year. It can be grown as a hedge, but it is better grown as a specimen where you can prune it in sympathy with the flowering.
