The original species was introduced by Robert Fortune in 1845 from China. It also occurs naturally in Korea and Japan. This beautiful newly introduced attractive culitvar is distinctive by virtue of its very compact growth and twin season flowering . Funnel shaped soft pink flowers are produced in abundance in late spring and again in late summer. Ideal for the smaller garden or patio. Can be grown as part of a mixed planting, as an individual specimen, or in a pot or container. Use a good quality John Innes compost as this plant will be there a long time and peaty types of compost eventually degrade and become too packed and choke the roots. Ensure you feed regularly as a hungry plant is a poor performer. We recommend Osmoscote pro 8-9 month applied in the early spring.
