    An eye-catching, evergreen shrub that is celebrated for its gorgeous, large flowers and lush, glossy foliage. Its compact, rounded shape makes it a stunning focal point or an elegant addition to a grouping in the garden. The standout feature of 'William Bartlett' is its abundant formal double blooms, which are a pale pink, splashed and streaked with darker pinks, reaching up to 4 inches (10cm) in diameter. The blooms appear from late winter to early spring, making a brilliant contrast against the dark green foliage.

  • Garden care: To prevent damage to the emerging buds and flowers protect from cold, dry winds and early morning sun. Water established plants in dry weather to prevent bud drop. Apply a balanced liquid fertiliser in mid-spring and again in June. Top-dress annually with shredded bark or well-rotted leaf mould. After flowering lightly trim or prune any branches that spoil the appearance of the plant. Prefers acidic soil with plenty of organic matter and good drainage.
