A small evergreen shrub with informal habit and clusters of elongated, deep red, bell flowers in late winter and spring. Prefers a cool, well drained soil high in compost and mulch. Responds to light pruning after flowering to keep compact and bushy. Great in rockery gardens, as border plant or in pot or tub. The deep red flowers in late winter make a great show at a time when not much is happening.
