Description

Only getting 40cm high this little guy is an excellent compact shrub and does well in containers or the ground as long as he gets full sun to part shade. The beauty of this guy is you can trim him into a fancy shape or let him do his own thing, and he will look just as good. Small purple flowers appear throughout the year and are long-lasting. This hardy shrub will not disappoint if you want to add some colour and shapes to the garden but not looking for high maintenance.
