'Hot Shot' is a very eyecatching evergreen shrub, due to its varigatted foliage and bright red flowers. Its boldly white edged evergreen foliage is very striking and being evergreen its ever boring. It also contrasts with is stunning yet flamboyant bright red flowers that are held in large clusters and produced in April to May.
Best grown in acidic, organically rich, medium moisture, moisture-retentive but well-drained soils in part shade. Prefers a sun dappled or high open shade.
