    Bred in Germany, this tough, low-growing, evergreen shrub is smothered in bright red flowers in early summer. The normally rich green leaves, often take on a bronze tint and this becomes more pronounced in colder weather, when the foliage can turn dark red. An ornamental addition to the front of a shrub border, it will also flourish in a pot fill with ericaceous compost, provided it is kept well watered.

  • Garden care: Apply a generous 5-7cm (2-3in) mulch of leaf mould around the base of the plant each spring.

  • Q:

    What evergreen shub would you recommend?

    I wonder if you would be good enough to recommend some low(ish) growing, flowering, evergreen shrubs to grow in full sun for part of the day with well drained clay type soil. Kind regards. Keith
