A delightful and very useful small shrub that is naturally compact growing and mounding. It bears masses of pendant pink bell flowers in winter to spring, which are visited by small nectar loving birds and insects. A great plant for partly shaded positions, and will still flower even in shade, but will also cope with more sun. It tolerates frosts well. Prune after flowering to encourage a more dense habit.
