  1. Fabulous plant

    By Maureen Sullivan 13-08-2016

    This is a vigorous and hardy plant ideal for hedging , as is evergreen and keeps its glossy leaves throughout the year The flowers are a lovely deep pink and will flower until the first frosts if gently pruned, I have had it flowering in winter on occasions. Well worth the money
