Marmelada - Ornamental Alibertia. Great choice for those who need to add a short and yet impressive shrub into landscape. The plant stays 2-3 ft tall, easy to prune if needed, with beautiful "shooting" white flowers, slightly fragrant. Very nice landscape exotic shrub for small spaces. It prefers filtered light and can tolerate shade - this is a great choice of flowering showy plant for shaded areas!
