This hybrid is a quick-growing, herbaceous, perennial shrub that has been produced in a number of colours. It has dark green, glossy leaves. Leaves and stems of the white version are fresh green. The under-leaves and stems of the light red version are deep maroon in colour. Frequent light pruning or tipping is necessary to keep them compact and bushy. Prune back hard after flowering during mid-winter. It was bred by Gert Brits, a South African plant breeder.
