This is a delightful small shrub that provides a brilliant spring display with its pendulous black-centred bell-shaped blooms. It forms a multi-stemmed plant that is surprisingly tough when grown in a well drained sunny or lightly shaded position in the garden. Give it a light trim and a feed after flowering. It makes an outstanding pot plant as well
