That is gorgeous! What's it's growing/flowering season?

9 Jan, 2008

 

It's in flower now - generally January to February, It can get to be a large shrub up to 12 feet tall and across. Mine is trained against a wall and pruned to within one bud of the old wood immediately after flowering. It needs a sheltered spot in partial shade. The only time it looks a bit 'off' is just after flowering when the old leaves (it is evergreen) look a bit tatty but by the end of April it has recovered.

Georgous specimen. It blooms at a time when most of the garden is still asleep.

I have mine against a fence and trellis.
Now I know what to do.
Trim it back immediately after flowering.
Thanks.
Do you think it flowers better because of the pruning?

Yes I think it does. Pruning early in the year means it has twelve months to make new growth and new growth is what it flowers on. Mine is absolutely plastered with buds again ready for next year's display
