Star Blush is a selected prolific larger flowering

form of Crowea saligna. This small shrub has

lush green leaves and produces multiple pink

waxy star-shaped flowers from late summer;

flowering best in autumn and continuing through

to spring. This small shrub provides colour and

food for fauna in the garden over the cooler

months of the year.

POSITION: Grows best in a semi-shaded site

and is adaptable to most well drained soils. This

plant is suitable for most climates and is best

suited to plant where soil conditions are cool.

Once this plant is established, Star Blush will

tolerate dry conditions provided root run is cool.

CARE: This small shrub requires little

maintenance other than a tip prune to promote a

more compact plant. It is best to initially feed

with a slow release low phosphorus fertiliser to

help establish the plant. It is beneficial to

follow up with the occasional reapplication of

fertiliser and apply as required. Mulching

around the base of the plant will help retain

moisture and suppress weeds.

USES: Star Blush is excellent for use

as a garden border, rockery plant,

specimen pot plant or as low level

planting to brighten up shady areas

in the garden.
