Lophomyrtus x ralphii 'Magic Dragon' (PBR)
A pretty, multi-coloured, evergreen shrub, from New Zealand, that will form a well-rounded plant in sheltered borders or containers. Small white flowers with a delicate scent appear in early summer on mature plants.
Trim to size in spring. Best protected from cold winds in the winter months. Best in well-drained soils or in pots and containers.
Water thoroughly, or stand pot in a container of water for half an hour before planting. Dig a hole twice the size of the root ball. Remove the pot, place the plant in the hole so that the root ball is level with the surrounding ground and refill, firming if necessary. Keep well watered in dry weather. Feed in spring with a good, general fertiliser.
