Moderate-growing evergreen shrub with an upright to semi-spreading growth habit to 6-8’ tall x 5-8’ wide. Can also be grown as a small patio tree. This highly-floriferous, long-blooming, heat and humidity tolerant Southern indica variety features lush, deep-green foliage accented with showy, single, light-orchid-pink flowers exhibiting a soft white variegation and attractive deep-pink throat speckling. These eye-catching flowers appear in abundance in early to mid-spring. Well suited as an accent, shrub border or mass planting, as well as making a fine container specimen. Performs best in filtered sunlight, but can tolerate full sun in coastal areas or mild-to-moderate summer climates. Thrives with regular watering in a rich, acidic, fast-draining soil. Deer resistant.
