  • Notes

This shrub will grow 1'-4' tall and wide. It has glossy green leaves with red and white bi-colored flowers that bloom from spring through fall. It prefers well draining soil with regular watering although it will take drought conditions. Prune back to prevent from getting leggy.
Planting Instructions: 1. Dig a hole 2 times the width and 1 and 1/2 times the height of the container. 2. Set rootball just above ground level. 3. Mix soil with 25% amendment and %75 soil. 4. Backfill with amended soil. 5. Build basin and water.
