Elite Series Osteospermum Calibrachoa Geranium Phlox Aster Nemesia Osteospermum Penstemon

Bracteantha Elite Series 

Include Elite Amber, Elite Citrine, Elite Pink Sapphire, Elite Garnet.
HABIT: They are a very compact perennial, with the Elite series being more dwarf than any other variety on the market. Height 30cm high by 50cm wide.
POSITION: ull sun to part shade, well drained soil, keep drier in winter.
FLOWERING: Bracteantha Elite series will flower all year but the best flowering period is during the warmer weather. They will hold their flowers for long periods on short stems and require only a littlepruning to encourage new blooms. The flowers are vibrant and a favourite amongst children due to their interesting ‘paper’ feel and texture. Flowers can also be picked and last extended period in an arrangement.
USES: Plant them wherever you need long term colour in the garden or pots. Bracteantha Elite easily out perform any other varieties on the market and in our trials flowered for more than twice as long as any other varieties, while remaining compact and not getting "leggy". They are perfect for perennial borders and under planting of standard plants where they will stay squat and colourful.
CARE: Use hedge shears to prune to shape occasionally when required, this will quickly encourage a bushier plant and repeat flower. Ensure this is only done in the warmer weather when they will recover quickly. Do not prune into old woody growth unless new shoots are present, regular light trims are preferable. They will perform better and flower more profusely with average garden watering and a fertilise every season with an all-purpose organic fertilizer.
