Passionate Blushs has an upright, erect form which not only keeps a tall dense habit, but also retains a neat appearance throughout the winter months. The prolific display of pink flowers are borne on shorter than usual stems and will add colour to garden borders for an extensive season with main flushes occurring during the warmer months although spot flowering may also occur during winter months. The dense, upright habit coupled with burgundy colouring in the new growth makes Passionate Blush a terrific specimen shrub, as well as offering the potential for creating an eye-catching, informal hedge.
