Description:

Another extremely showy , suckering glorybower shrub with aromatic leaves and huge pink flowers in Summer, with a diameter of 10-20cm. It also looks stunning against a south facing wall or in a border, or near a path. Its flowering is continuous in the Summer. Less drought tolerant than C. trichotomum and prefers moist, fertile soil. It is best to cut the stems back to 3-4 buds in Autumn, as the old stems rarely survive the Winter (in the UK), protect the base, and new strong growth will emerge in Spring with dark green foliage, buds on the top. It is sensitive to late frosts! Rarely offered, our plants are from cuttings of last year. It is relatively easy to propagate from suckers, takes a long time from cuttings.
