A low mounding dense shrub with golden green foliage, highlighted by golden new growth, and is either in bud or displaying a profusion of coral pink flowers throughout the year. Great plant for banks or bare areas, for low hedging, plant at 75cm centres; it may also be planted as a hardy, long flowering container plant in hot dry regions.
