New! This is an intriguing evergreen shrub from South Africa that bears masses of mauve-blue fan-shaped flowers. Blooming most the year, with the heaviest during the warmer months, the flowers are attractive to bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds. It's a multi-stemmed rounded shrub growing 6 to 8 feet tall and wide with small attractive glossy deep green leaves and a somewhat lax form. It thrives in part to full shade and is excellent as a background shrub or as a potted specimen. Give it good drainage, average moisture, and neutral to acidic soil. It can be easily pruned if necessary. It tolerates a bit of light frost, but not freezing conditions. USDA zones 9b-11.
