Sugar Candy produces superb displays of pink flowers in early spring and then again in late summer on an upright large shrub. It makes a great feature plant or can be used for formal or informal hedgework as the new leaf growth is silvery in colour and a feature in its own right. The plants can be pruned to whatever shape you require but if an informal look is desired just give them a light prune behind the spent flowers and feed with a low phosphorus fertiliser for Australian plants.
