Rondeletia amoena

Description

Rondeletia amoena is a tall, dense and hardy evergreen shrub just perfect for a hedge or screen.

Large, broad leaves that are glossy, heavily-veined and coloured mid-green fill your garden all year round, and then in springtime, the magic happens. Clusters of deep salmon-pink, lightly perfumed long-lasting flowers, pretty enough to satisfy any hard-core flower fan, adorn the branches.

This is a dense grower that gets almost as wide as it does high, so take a look at your available proportions first. If the width is not a problem, this makes an ideal tall flowering hedge.

Grown as a feature plant Rondeletia amoena is exceptionally pretty, but its best to avoid containers as they don’t like having their roots constrained (who does?).

Amoena needs well-drained soil and prefers life on the warmer side. Trim her back after flowering to maintain the size and that’s all the care she needs. Talk about low maintenance!

Quick Facts: 

  • What to use me for:  I make an outstanding tall screen or hedge - but make sure you have enough room for my width.

  • I grow to: I’ll reach 3 metres tall by 2 metres wide.

  • I am currently:  A baby 15-20cms just raring to grow.

  • Where to place me:  I like full sun but will tolerate partial shade.

  • How far to space me:  I’m tall, wide and need some space - 2 metres, please.

  • Soil Conditions: I have to be well drained because wet soils are bad for me. Other than that I’m easy going. 

Our plants are beautifully grown, mature tube stock with well developed roots. They are guaranteed sun-hardened, can be planted directly into the ground and are excellent performers for your garden.

We carefully package your plants into a customised box to ensure safe transport, healthy plants and delivery to your door.

 

    Please take care when choosing your plants. Some plants are poisonous and individuals may be more sensitive or react differently
