Fresh from his Aussie trials, brand NEW Little Ollie is ready to bring all the birds to your yard with his distinctive red fluffy flowers. He's a good all-rounder for smaller gardens, tall enough for a privacy hedge and small enough for smaller mixed borders; repeat flowering through the year, and glossy green all over when not in flower.
