Acmadenia obtusata – 15cm
One of the most striking ornamental buchus, low growing to30cm becoming absolutely covered with large, star shaped magenta flowers in winter and early summer. Plant in well drained full sun position, prune lightly to shape and feed with organic fertiliser or 3:1:5 especially before flowering. Although drought resistant, they thrive on regular watering. Lovely in containers or grouped in beds.
