Spiny hummocks with masses of tiny pink flowers.
This is a shrubby variety with silver foliage and pastel pink flowers on mass in spring. We have grown these for as long as we have been in business and have to say it is a delight to see every year. It will slowly mature into a low shrub keeping its spiny branches through the winter looking quite architectural.
This is a spiky shrublet so beware. You can trim back some of the old spikes in Spring to promote new growth. The plant will look a little bare in winter but this is normal.
