Truly the belle of the indigenous ball, this graceful shrub or small tree clads itself every spring and early summer in spray upon spray of brilliant, white to mauve, bell-shaped flowers, shown off to great effect by the dark green foliage. It will light up any light shade or semi-shaded area, is an excellent hedge or screening plant, and creates a stunning display in a pot.
