They are compact evergreen shrubs that reach 3 meters in height and 4 meters in width. The leaves are small, narrow, pointed and deep green in color. The showy spider-shaped flowers are red or pink. They can bloom from winter to summer; the most intense flowering occurs in spring.

They are used as isolated specimens, in bushy groups next to a wall, to form screens and hedges or in pots for patios and terraces. They are ideal for Mediterranean coastal gardens.

They resist drought well; water all year round always waiting for the substrate to have completely dried.

Fertilize with compost or manure in the fall.

Prune lightly after flowering to maintain a compact appearance.

They are shrubs resistant to the usual pests and diseases.

They propagate by cuttings in spring or summer.
