Moderately slow-growing evergreen shrub with an upright growth-habit, typically to 8-10’ tall x 5-8’ wide or larger with age. Can be pruned to maintain a smaller size. This long-time garden favorite is a midseason bloomer and features lustrous, glossy deep-green foliage accented with large, showy, semi-double rose-pink flowers. Well-suited as an accent or foundation planting and can be grown on trellises or in containers. A popular choice for woodland or Asian themed gardens. Prefers a rich, well-drained soil in a filtered-sun to light-shade exposure.
