Although I have read that this shruub is hardy I think it is tender and will bring it inside for the winter. There are many common names for this plant, which depends on which area of Southern Africa it grows. The large number of common names indicates that this plant has many uses and is important to the people where it grows. It is named after Nehemiah Grew (1641-1712), an English physician. It seems to flower continuously for a long time in the summer.
