Crowea saligna ‘Rosy Glow’

A very attractive small shrub, with numerous starry pink flowers from autumn through winter. Likes sun or semi shade, if grown in sun some protection from hot afternoon sun is advisable. It prefers moist soils but once established will tolerate dry periods. Can take up to moderate frosts. Prune after flowering to encourage a more dense habit, a nice task as the plant has aromatic foliage.
