Description: 'Reva' is a tender, compact, mound-forming, evergreen shrub, often grown as an annual, with upright stems bearing ovate, wrinkled, dark green leaves and clusters of small, fragrant, lilac flowers from early summer into autumn.

Care: Grow in moist but well-drained soil in sun. In frost-prone areas, overwinter indoors or under glass. Under glass, grow in loam-based or loamless compost in full light with shade from hot sun. Deadhead regularly to prolong flowering. In early spring, tip prune young plants to promote a tidy habit. Rejuvenate leggy plants by cutting stems in half in spring. Will be much shorter if grown as an annual.
