Freylinia tropica is a beautiful shrub with slender rather loosely spreading branches. It is fairly fast growing and reaches a height of about 2m with 1m spread. It flowers profusely yielding a light mauve to bright blue display. A white flowering form is available and is not as upright in its growth form as the blue. Flowering time for this stunning shrub is mainly in spring.

They are loved for their delicate clusters of bell-shaped or tubular flowers in various colours, and are excellent low-maintenance plants for gardens large and small. Freylinia are also virtually pest free and will attract birds and butterflies to the garden, as well as other beneficial garden insects.
