A dense shrub or small tree with slender, loosely spreading branches. It flowers profusely, bearing small, delicate flowers in white or lilac. The white flowering form is usually not as upright in its growth form as the blue. It produces flowers throughout the year but the main flowering time for this stunning shrub is in spring.
I first spotted this growing in the wild along the roadside on the Vumba Road in Zimbabwe and again at the source of Bridal Veil Falls in Chimanimani. In the wild, with no pruning, they tend to be rather twiggy and can reach a height of 3m.
We’ve planted this extensively throughout Gauteng. I’ve noticed that the leaves tend to be slightly larger and a darker green when plants experience fewer hours of direct sunlight.
