After flowering, cut back stems that have bloomed to the side shoots that have not yet flowered. Cut some of the oldest stems to the ground.

‘Wine & Roses’ is a compact, mounding shrub with bright rose-pink flowers against dark burgundy leaves. Excellent focal point or accent plant. W. 'Variegata' has deep rosy red flowers and creamy yellow to white leaf edges. Full sun ensures strongest color and sure to attract hummingbirds. Moderate to rapid growth.

–  –  –

This is a basic landscape foliage plant with spreading growth and stems that zigzag upward in an interesting shape. Can be trained as a small tree, but this requires a lot of shaping. The bright-green shiny leaves are pointed and oval, the flowers are insignificant.

If allowed to grow free, it grows long, graceful side branches that arch or droop, sometimes on the ground. It can be espaliered on a wall or fence, or used as a clipped or unclipped hedge. It loses leaves in a hard frost. This shrub needs shaping for about 3 years, then seems to mature and retain its shape. Tolerates heat very well.
