For gorgeous variegation and delicate lavender flowers, this dense, upright evergreen perennial shrub delivers. Hemizygia Candy Kisses features refined foliage with a rounded shape, making it the perfect fit for containers, rock gardens, borders, and mass plantings in warmer climates. In colder areas, it makes an excellent houseplant. The ornamental leaves, which grow on burgundy stems, are dark green with creamy white margins. From mid-winter to late fall, lavender-pink flower spikes rise above the foliage, attracting bees and butterflies.
Bright, filtered sunlight is best for Hemizygia Candy Kisses. It will tolerate partial shade and prefers evenly-moist conditions. After blooming, flower heads can be trimmed off to encourage new growth.
