Fabiana is a once seen, never forgotten shrub, and it’s not that often seen. The arching branches are covered in tiny needle-like evergreen leaves and when they are joined, in early summer, by multitudes of lavender mauve tubular flowers all along the stems, it’s a stunning sight. Full sun. Well drained soil, not clay. To 6 ft. 2 litre pot.
