Dainty little native shrub that is smothered in hot pink bell flowers in late winter-spring. Looks at home tumbling over a rockery or in a mixed flowering bed. Likes sunshine with a little shade, and free draining slightly acid soil. Grow it in a pot if you have clay or alkaline soil, it will flower very happily there.
