Attractive evergreen shrub valued for its unusual blackish maroon colored foliage that maintains its intriguing color even throughout the heat of summer. Prized for its stunning display of fragrant deep pink flower clusters in spring. Has a distinct, upright form with strong ascending branches even in its youth. Handsome peeling bark when mature adds even more interest.
