Clouds of pink flowers!

What do you think of when you hear a name like ‘Breath of Heaven’? Something light as air, or wispy like a cloud? Something that smells fresh and clean? Something…well…heavenly?

That’s what you get with Pink Breath of Heaven (Coleonema pulchrum ‘Compacta’). This compact shrub has lovely bright green, tiny heather-like leaves that give it a very soft look. They release a gentle fragrance when crushed or brushed against. (It makes a great plant along a walkway or a path where your garden guests can both touch the soft foliage and smell the sweet heath scent.)

This Breath of Heaven is covered with a blanket of ballet-slipper-pink flowers from spring to frost. It grows 2-3 feet tall and 4-6 feet wide so it makes a great specimen plant or a pretty backdrop for the border. They are perfect in pairs flanking a garden bench, too. For a truly spectacular sight, use them to cover a slope! They will pour down the sides like a gently flowing stream of soft pink and green and help to stabilize the soil with aplomb.

Pink Breath of Heaven is an evergreen shrub in zones 8-10 and is hearty enough to stand up to windy and salty coastal conditions. It is also surprisingly drought-tolerant once it is established. If you don’t live in zone 8-10, never fear! Pink Breath of Heaven makes an excellent annual for container planting and mix flower beds and borders.

Make sure to add this beauty to your garden this year no matter where you live! Order yours from us today.
