These lovely, drought tolerant, evergreen shrubs are somewhat underused in gardens. They offer attractive foliage and lots of large, beautiful flowers resembling a single rose in shades of pink or white. The petals are like crepe paper, thin and crinkled. 'Sunset' has glowing dark magenta flowers and greyish green foliage. It is a hybrid between C. albidus and C. crispus.
