The flowers are white, hairy and have the upper petal divided into two lobes. They also have orange-to-purply spots on their bottom half. This shrub is very tough and grows on cliffs right next to the ocean.
The plant's tolerance to a variety of soils, the neatly whorled leaves and all-year flowering make it very popular in cultivation. It (or its cultivar(s)) is a recipient of the Royal Horticultural Society's Award of Garden Merit.
