A wonderful large evergreen shrub, with spectacular red lantern flowers in early summer. In its early years it benefits from being cut back a few times, or it will become tall and straggly.
I am heartbroken that I had to cut my big specimen down (although I really like the space it has left). I have planted three more around the garden to replace it.
