Clianthus Flamingo (pink) 

This evergreen New Zealand native produces masses of pink flowers from March to May. Their form is quite reminiscent of a flamingo's beak!

Planting

Remove the plant from its container and thoroughly soak the root ball. Place the plant (not too deeply) in a hole with a mixture of loose soil and topsoil around the root ball, gently tamping the earth.

Maintenance

Water well during the first year and apply an appropriate fertiliser in spring. Protect from snails and slugs.
