Description

The evergreen shrubs will carry clusters of long tubular flowers which will bloom in shades of blue, purple, red or white throughout the summer and autumn. They are frost tender, min 7-10C and will need full light or partial shade in fertile well drained soil.

Cultivation

Tip prune young plants to stimulate a bushy habit. Cut back flowered stems by half in late winter.
