This tidy little shrub fits perfectly into a butterfly garden, or anywhere that could use a pop of fun texture. Most of the year it sports lightly fragrant small clusters of pale pink to white trumpet shaped flowers at the ends of its branches. The real star of the show though, is the foliage. Densely packed green leaves feature a delightful streaky margin that is pink on new growth, fades to white over the season, and then gets rosy again in the cold months. It’s not an aggressive grower, and can be shaped into a low hedge if desired, or left alone to its natural mounding shape.
