Main asset

Abundant and very long flowering, well visible above the foliage, on a vigorous plant, resistant to drought. Can regrow for the ground in case of intense frost.


The plant suckers abundantly without being difficult to control. A short pruning in late winter helps a more vigorous and aesthetic vegetation.

Small suckering shrub, with light green thin foliage, soft branches blooming on the wood of the year, without stopping from summer to early autumn, in short clusters of light pink pea-shaped flowers. The shrub tolerates a short pruning, but can also be left free to reach 1.50 m.
