This beautiful shrub which will do well in Australia in all but the coldest and driest of our areas.

It has a strong ethno-botanical reputation as a medicinal plant with active ingredients in the leaves, flowers, bark and roots. We have not had the opportunity to test Barbados Pride to verify the claims as yet so we have nothing to report on it's usefulness.

As a magical addition to the garden, we would not be without it, Barbados Pride sits beautifully amidst many other medicinal plants without affecting them adversely, so I guess it's here to stay.

Germination is easy and quite fast and it requires little maintenance apart from winter trimming.
