A Mediterranean native that does quite well
in the low desert of Phoenix. It grows into a 6-8' x 4' shrub.
Leaves are maple-like and 2 1/2" across. Flowers are lavender-pink
and appear all summer. It does have an open habit and if a more
compact plant is desired, an occasional hard prune is needed. It
will do quite well in full sun to partial shade. Deep infrequent
irrigations are best. It is evergreen.
