One of my new favourite plants — a neat and compact evergreen, that looks sensational all year round with fine, rich crimson and very pretty leaves. We’ve had 'Bannow Bay' growing in a pot since last autumn and it changes colour from season to season, with me picking little sprigs for our kitchen table flowers regularly all through. It also produces small, bell-shaped deep mauve flowers that have a distinctive honey-scented perfume.
Perfect for growing in pots and containers on the patio.
