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.

WHERE TO GET YOUR PLANT

Once you have found the plant that you want, the next step is to find where to get it. Nurseries stock a good range of plants, but due to space and supplies, they may or may not have the wanted plant in stock. If they don’t, they may be able to order it in for you.  Specialist nurseries are also able to give great advice, and if they don’t have the plant you want, they can often suggest alternative plants that will be just as good for you.
