Pretty and dainty native with larger flowers than the Rose Carpet variety, as you can see in the image gallery. Ranges from a low groundcover to a tallish hedge height depending on location, light, and available water. Bright bell-like blooms in clear pink, are framed by small green leaves. Very easy care - just give it a clip over in early spring after frosts to encourage those new buds to form.
Bauera rubioides 'Candy Stripe' - dog rose APPEARANCE : Airy native shrub similar to a boronia, variable in size - shorter in sunny exposed sites and taller in shady sheltered ones. Foliage is small, slender, mid green in colour with pinky-mauve bell-shaped flowers for most of the year in well-watered plants, mainly in spring in dry gardens. The common name is misleading as this is clearly not a rose! USE IN:Pots, tubs, windowboxes, front of border, groundcover. PLANTING: Plant in sun to part shade. Prefers moist, light, well-draining soils, neutral to acidic; regular water, and a shady spot. CARE: Mulch and water regularly during the first 12 weeks to help establish a good root system. Trim lightly in spring if required. Renew the mulch annually, especially in sunny sites, to reduce water loss at the roots. HEIGHT & WIDTH: 50cm H x 1.2m W. YOUR PLANTS: These are tubestock plants, healthy young plants with new roots that will establish quickly in your garden. The pot size is 80mm high and 42 mm wide.
