Product Information

Otherwise known as 'Glory Flower', 'Pink Diamond' is an easy-care choice for summer interest in your garden borders or in pots on your patio.

Large clusters of deep-pink flowers emerge in high summer from dark red buds, set off against large, heart-shaped, soft green leaves, each with a subtle cream variegation. Flowering from August to September, the fragrant blooms are a magnet for bees and butterflies.

Compact at about 1.2m (4ft) height and spread, it is tailor-made for larger pots as well as smaller garden borders and shrubberies, in sun or partial shade.

This half-hardy, deciduous shrub is easy to care for, requiring only a little trimming in the autumn to keep it tidy. It will require protection from the worst of the winter weather, so mulch around the base of the plant if in the ground, or move container-grown plants to a conservatory or greenhouse during the winter.

Supplied as an established plant in a 3L pot, ready to plant.

Top Tips

  • Add mychorrhizal fungi to the roots before planting to help the plant establish more quickly.

 

Care Information

  • Pot-grown shrubs can be planted at any time of the year as long as the soil is not waterlogged or frozen. If in doubt, err towards spring, but remember to keep pots well-watered so that the soil does not dry out.
  • Dig a planting hole 3 x wider than the roots of the shrub you're planting and mix some well-rotted compost or manure with the soil from the hole and use this to refill once the shrub is in place. We've found that a square hole is better than a round one as the new roots, once they reach the edges, tend to grow in a circle round the circumference of the hole whereas when they reach the corners of a square hole, they find it easier to grow through.
  • Before planting, soak container-grown shrubs thoroughly and allow to drain.
  • Remove the plant from its pot and tease out a few of the roots. Add mycorrhizal fungi to the roots when planting to help plants establish more quickly.
  • Place your shrub in the hole at the same level as the pot. Refill the hole with the earth removed (backfilling).
  • Firm in the soil with your heel, avoiding the rootball.
  • Water well.
  • Mulch around the base of the plant with a collar, compost, gravel or bark.
  • If you are planting into pots, place some old rocks, stones or gravel in the bottom of the pot for drainage and ballast.
  • Use the best compost you can buy and some sand or grit for drainage.
