This little beauty will perform virtually non-stop from summer into autumn with masses of saucer-shaped apricot coloured flowers on a compact shrub with felted evergreen leaves. Prune it hard in spring for best results. And as required during the summer to reinvigorate flowering. Sunny spot. Any reasonable well drained soil. To 3 feet. 2 litre pot.

Beautiful but rarely seen. Probably because they have a reputation for being a bit tender, but we find they are fine here in the pampered sun-kissed South of England. Up North you might want to provide some shelter, we suppose.

We usually grow S. Newleaze Coral as well. Hard to choose which is nicer: maybe the peachy colour of Childerley just shades it, though its coral red cousin arguably has a better habit. Hmm.

Sphaeralcea Childerley is a hardy semi-evergreen shrub with grey green leaves and saucer shaped apricot flowers in summer into autumn suitable for full sun.
