The “Donation” is a bushy, evergreen shrub which has leathery, ovate and glossy-green leaves. It produces vibrant pink, semi-double flowers. The deep-green foliage is prevalent throughout the year.
The plant can be used in areas for accents in borders and along house walls. In order to develop deeper pink hues in the flowers, it is important that they be planted in shadier areas.
Although it is advisable to plant them in sheltered areas, they can tolerate colder temperatures around -10⁰ to -15⁰ C when protected.
These hardy plants grow into large-sized shrubs with single flowers and groups of blooms throughout the plant.
Make sure to keep a watchful eye for any of the pests like aphids, scale insects and vine weevils.
Overall it is a hardy plant which will continue to provide beauty for years to come. If needed, it is important to carefully prune immediately after the flowering season. The placement of these plants is especially important during the flowering season to avoid early morning sun during frost, as this will cause the flowers to wilt and perish.
