Probably a hybrid between Polygala oppositifolia and Polygala myrtifolia. Grows 3 to 5 ft. high and wide; usually bare at base. Grayish green, oval to lance-shaped leaves to 1 in. long. Blooms nonstop from midsummer to fall, producing flowers in a bright, vivid purplish pink that combines well with blue shades and white. To conceal this plant’s legginess, set low, bushy plants in front of it. Cut back hard in late winter to promote more compact, bushy growth. Replace plant if it becomes too lanky. Good filler.
