Desmodium callianthum

Desmodium callianthum
An appealing twiggy shrub producing rich pink flowers in rich red calyces on slim red stems through much of the summer. The foliage is also rather nice, being trifoliate (ie. clover leaf shape), rich red when new, then subtly variegated in two shades of green - the photo doesn't really do it justice.
An excellent and easy going hardy shrub for any soil in sun, flowering well into the autumn.
1L pots ~ £7
