Bauera rubiodes x sessiliflora ‘Rose Carpet’ – River Rose


A charming small shrub that flowers all year round, with good flushes of flowers in spring and summer. A really useful plant for half shady and moist areas, and flowers well in these situations. It also does well in coastal gardens. It has small leaves and a dense growth habit, forming a nice mounded plant, but needs consistent moisture to be at its best. It can be pruned lightly in spring or summer to shape, but is attractive without trimming if desired. Suits cool temperate to sub tropical areas, and tolerates medium frosts.
