Description

In the summer months this handsome upright shrub has clusters of nodding, bell-shaped, red-veined pinky white blooms but it’s later in the year when it really comes into its own. You get spectacular autumn colour as the foliage turns into a bonfire of orange, vermillion and flame-red. Unbeatable.

Care Tips

Grow in moist but well-drained, humus-rich ericaceous soil in full sun or partial shade. Apply a thick mulch of ericaceous compost or well-rotted leaf mould around the base of the plant in spring. Little pruning is needed.
