Description
Rock Roses are tough little plants that flourish on gritty soils, coping well during periods of drought. This one is particularly pretty with single, bright pink flowers in summer. If cut back after flowering, it may well treat you to a second flush of blooms later in the season. The low, spreading stems are covered with small evergreen leaves all year round. Helianthemum 'Bunbury' is a cheery ground cover plant for the front of sunny borders, rockeries and gravel gardens. It makes a lovely feature when planted between paving slabs or softening the edges of a pathway, and tolerates coastal conditions especially well. Height: 20cm (8"). Spread: 30cm (12").

Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.

How to Grow
Pot up helianthemum plants and grow them on until large enough to plant outdoors. When they are well grown, acclimatise them to outdoor conditions over 7 to 10 days before transplanting into their final positions. Transplant rock roses into moderately fertile, neutral or alkaline soil, in full sun. Helianthemum dislike wet ground, particularly during winter. Improve heavy soil conditions by adding coarse grit or sharp sand prior to planting. Once established, rock roses can easily tolerate dry sandy soils.
More Info
Feed and water regularly throughout the growing season while young plants become established. Once established, rock roses are relatively drought tolerant and require minimal maintenance. After flowering, prune helianthemum stems back to within 3cm (1") of the previous year's growth.
