Lady two doors down has one against her southeast facing wall..she has just had to have it hacked back by the gardener..sorry ahem...pruned!

Lucky lady, I used to prune off the flowers to keep it compact, we had another red one but it was a different variety and was very woody, so it had to go......

Interesting..if ever I do find space, must make sure its not the woody one. thanks for that

Thanks Cristina, it looks pretty much the same except for the beautiful bottlebrush which died in the last cold winter.
