This is one of those wonderful 'practically all year round' performers for the garden.  Through autumn and winter, it is most floriferous producing lots of large mid-pink single flowers with deep reddish-pink centres on airy, branching stems cloaked with slightly leathery mid green leaves.  This display lessens in spring and summer but it still there to admire.

This is a great evergreen shrub for a small, sheltered garden or terrace, where plants really have to prove their worth. Hailing from the South African Cape, it needs a sunny spot and free-draining soil to thrive and can be semi-evergreen in colder winters.  In spring after the frosts have finished, prune by 50% to encourage further and longer flowering.
