This shrub provides beautiful pink flowers in the spring, and evergreen leaves and its compact growth habit provide interesting fall and winter foliage. It requires well drained and very acidic soil with high organic content, so peat moss or other organic matter additions may be necessary when planting. It can be planted in sun to part shade, and can also succeed as a container plant. Some shelter from harsh winter conditions may be beneficial in colder climates.
The 'Aglo' variety is an interspecific hybrid.
