It usually forms a rounded to spreading bushy shrub, 2 ft high by 3 ft wide, but sometimes also climbs/leans into nearby trees and shrubs (up to 6 ft!). New branches tend to root as they touch ground, so this plant can quickly increase its territory if not kept under surveillance. Evergreen, it has soft, shiny, dark green leaves. Flowers are fairly large, and are a deep purple-mauve or pink-red, appearing from late spring to autumn. This plant is easily propagated from cuttings. Always provide good, light, well-drained soil and plenty of compost and other organic material. Water well in summer, but much less in winter. Pest-free and fairly frost-tolerant, it can take sun or light shade.
