Selected from trees planted near Taranaki, this variety is stunning producing stunning soft pink blooms. It grows into an upright form, however the horizontal branches drape softly, at times almost to ground level.
Size 5 x 8 metres
Full sun. Grows best in a free draining soil rich in organic matter.
Dig a hole that is at least twice as wide and twice as deep as the pot your plant came in. Backfill hole with a mix of your top soil, Kings Compost, and Sheep Pellets. Or if you don’t have much top soil use Living Earth Garden Mix instead. Carefully remove the pot and gently plant. Plant at the same depth as it was in the pot. If you’re in heavier soils you can also plant into a slight mound to help improve the drainage.
Mulch with Living Earth More Than Mulch to help suppress weeds and reduce watering needs.
Help feed the plant and improve the soil by feeding with Kings Sheep Pellets and Aquaticus Garden Booster. Feed in early spring, and again in autumn.
