Mounding – Stunning floral display

I am a small evergreen shrub with a significant ‘WOW’ factor being is covered in vibrant magenta flowers in spring.

My early growth can be spreading or cascading but I develop into a rounded shrub approximately 1m high.

I thrive in most well drained soils but dislike boggy and limey soils.
