Out of stock
The name says purple, the colour says pink; a lovely deep rich pink in sunlight, in a petite sized shrub, flowering for almost half the year. Related to boronias, croweas are excellent garden plants, frost hardy and frequently flowering. They prefer a cool, moist, slightly shady position and regular water to flower at their best, so find some dappled shade and enjoy these starry natives.

Crowea exalata 'Compact Purple' - waxflower
APPEARANCE : Native flowering shrub from NSW VIC and southern QLD, with small slender evergreen leaves and purple-pink star-shaped flowers from late summer to early winter, and intermittently the rest of the year outside very hot or cold periods.
USE FOR :  Native and cottage gardens, winter colour. Can be grown in pots and containers, and the stems cut to enjoy indoors in a vase.
PLANTING:  Plant in dappled shade and free-draining light sandy acid soil for best results. Tolerates a light frost.
CARE:  Mulch plants generously to regulate soil temperatures and keep roots cool and moist as the young plant establishes. Water regularly - don't let plants dry out or become waterlogged. A prune once flowering has finished, or at the end of winter, will help give the plant shape and encourage new growth. Follow with an application of a slow release fertiliser for natives, and fresh mulch.
HEIGHT & WIDTH:  50 - 80 cm H x 1m W.
YOUR PLANTS: These are tubestock plants, healthy young plants with new roots that will establish quickly in your garden. The pot height is 80 mm x 42 mm wide. You can see an example in the image gallery
