This shrub is deciduous so it will lose all its leaves in autumn, then fresh new foliage appears again each spring.


  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: fertile, well-drained, preferably neutral to acid soil
  • Rate of growth: average to fast-growing
  • Flowering period: May to June
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    In late spring and early summer the arching stems of this pretty shrub are covered with ruby-red, pea-like flowers. Ideal for a sunny, well-drained site, its compact size is especially suitable for the smaller garden.

  • Garden care: Pinch out the shoots of young plants to encourage the development of a bushy habit. It needs to be pruned each year after flowering to ensure a bumper crop of flowers in the following year. Reduce the flowered stems to young sideshoots or low buds, taking care not to cut into the old wood.
