One of the most attractive shrubs for South African summer rainfall gardens. Large, heart-shaped leaves provide good screening and lovely, slightly furry grey-green foliage. This is a fast-growing shrub, so perfect for impatient gardeners and those in need of a quick privacy screen. Large, cup-shaped flowers cluster in groups at the tips of branches, pale pink to bright pink with dark pink centres. The Pink Wildpear is semi-deciduous in a cold, dry winter.
