What an unusual shrub. It looks really pretty with the mix of colours.
How big does it grow? Could I grow it in a pot and over-winter it in a cold greenhouse?

in portugal.I have done a follow up of this plant..
Height 1-4ft,spread 1-3 ft. got this information out a garden book, so I would think this plant could be grown in the south of the uk

I've just looked up the plant and it says that the leaves and stems when crushed smell of (quote) "cat pee "!
So maybe it should be sited at the back of a border. Lol. :o)
