Vigorous growth rate more than makes up for slow start in spring.
Valued for its late summer display of impressively large blooms. This particular variety has two tones blending together. Deep fuchsia pink blending to a light pink shade creates a pinwheel appearance. These are exotic tropical looking plants but are tough hardy plants.
In spring cut back any remaining stems before new growth appears.
One of the last shrubs to leaf out in spring, tricking some gardeners to believe it has died over the winter when actually it may not have.
