This shrubby little bush comes from South Africa, and is a resilient hardy garden plant. It's dotted with starry pink flowers most of the year - especially in winter when our gardens need colour most.

If you get hard frost it will need protection, but otherwise it's easy to grow in most gardens. Neat size ideal for rockeries, front of borders, and potted colour.
