A striking foliage plant that deserves a place in many gardens. It is hardy in diverse situations, and is a naturally easy care plant, that will really shine with a little bit of extra care such as a light pruning every now and again. This cultivar rarely flowers but should be grown for its wonderful, bright pink to red new growth which is borne on a very compact, bun-shaped shrub. It grows well in a wide range of climatic conditions, from humid tropical areas to cool temperate climates. Once established it is dry tolerant, but it will appreciate deep watering in dry periods. A light regular trim and an application of a good general purpose fertiliser will be beneficial. if it gets neglected, this plant can take a heavier pruning, and will respond well thanks to the many dormant buds in its stems.
