Flowering time

Warm summer months


A lowish, compact bush to a tall willowy plant up to 900 mm high. The leaves are usually long, rigid and sharp-tipped, but they may also be quite short. The fairly tubular flowers (12-22 mm long) are slightly constricted at the mouth and are bunched together at the end of the branches. They range widely in colour from white, yellow, orange, brown, pink, red and purple, as well as being twotoned.
