Thanks Sherry. How big did you'd get? I can't really plant trees here. If I can keep it small shrub size I'll give it a go. I tip my hat to you.

You will love this shrub, HamiltonSquare. For me it blooms almost year-round, except during the hottest days in summer, when water is very scarce here.

You folks familiar with and growing this plant should add the info to the ATP database. I had to do a Google search to find info after seeing it here. It's so much more convenient to just go to the ATP database Green Grin! . I know. I admit I'm inherently lazy nodding .

I'll find a spot for it and try to keep it on the small side. Thank everyone. Group hug

I received mine as a small plant (some 20cm) as a present when I purchased other plants. That was 3 or maybe 4 years ago. The plant has always been in a pot and has grown to app. 1m and filled in to the sides.

It makes a really good "transition" plant for areas that get a little less than full sun, and those that get a mix of full sun and dappled shade.

I like it! Bloom is so unique.
