South African native forms a flat pattern against a wall if planted against it.  It can serve many purposes from being used as an espalier against a wall to even a ground cover to a small ornamental tree.  Dark green 3" leaves.  Flowers are star shaped and lavender pink from late spring into fall.  Can be somewhat frost tender in the low desert.
