Profuse clusters of dainty, flat-topped rose-pink flowers in summer on this compact, mounded shrub. Small, toothed, mint-green dense foliage turns dark red in fall. Excellent low maintenance specimen and border shrub, can used as a low hedge plant. Prefers moist, well-drained soil. Fertilize in spring with a good compost or an all purpose fertilizer before new growth emerges. Spent flowers can be sheared off to encourage a new flush of blooms. Blooms on new wood: to shape, prune as needed in late winter/early spring before new growth emerges.
Available in select potted sizes.
