An upright, rounded, evergreen shrub with glossy, dark green foliage with a sensational mid-spring display of large, rounded trusses of clear pink flowers. Tolerates shade and thrives in cooler regions but benefits from protection from winter winds. Withstands heat and humidity. An excellent informal hedge or foundation plant.
