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. This species has glowing pink flowers and wavy-edged leaves with sticky hairs.
