Coleonema pulchrum

Pink Breath of Heaven

These delicate-looking evergreen shrubs are valued for their fragrant, fine-textured leaves and abundant flowers. Blooms winter through spring and sporadically throughout the year. Also called Diosma. Prefers sull sun, though becomes taller in some shade. Requires fast-draining soil. Shear lightly after first bloom, and thin out old wood in mature plants.
