A fast growing shrub which is semi-evergreen, only losing its leaves in hard winter weather, or if caught in a cold wind. The flowers cover the plants in early summer and the wrinkled petals are like tissue paper. The leaves and stems are sticky to touch allowing the plant to tolerate salt laden winds. Makes a lovely informal hedge in mild areas and a great plant to grow in a hot, dry border or near the sea.
