Full Product Details

Product Information

Divine and notably glossy brown leaves emerge so dark, you would think they are black! This evergreen shrub soon becomes coated in rich leaves edged in a dazzling shade of pink that cuts through the darkness with ease and looks impressive regardless of the month.

This light to dark contrast is truly striking and is sure to be a talking point amongst your garden’s guests.

Also known as the ‘Looking Glass Plant’, as you can almost see yourself  in the deep, dark leaves. The foliage makes an idyllic backdrop for summertime scatterings of dainty white flowers, for even more colour variation.

Remaining relatively compact as it grows, this flowering shrub thrives in all manner of soil types, levels of shade, and garden scenarios, from beds and borders to patio pots.

What’s more, it is superbly low-maintenance, perfect for those gardeners with little time on their hands, or who wish to grow a shrub that ‘does its own thing!’

Supplied as an established plant in a 9cm pot, ready for planting.

Top Tips

  • Be sure to water well through the first year to help the roots to establish.

Care Information

  • Dig a planting hole three times the width of the roots you're planting and mix some well-rotted compost or manure with the soil from the hole and use this to re-fill once the shrub is in place.
  • We've found that a square hole is better than a round one as the new roots, once they reach the edges tend to grow in a circle round the circumference of the hole whereas when they reach the corners of a square hole, they find it easier to grow through.
  • Before planting, soak container-grown shrubs thoroughly and allow them to drain.
  • Remove the plant from its pot and tease out a few of the roots. Add Mycorrhizal fungi to the roots when planting to help quicker establishment. 
  • Place your shrub in the hole at the same level as it was supplied in the nursery pot and refill the hole with the earth removed (backfilling).
  • Firm in the soil with your heel, avoiding the root ball and water well.
  • Mulch around the base of the plant with a collar, compost, gravel, bark etc.
  • If you're planting into pots, place some old rocks, stones or gravel in the bottom of the pot for drainage and ballast and use the best compost you can buy and some sand or grit for drainage.
