Chamelaucium ‘Sweet Rosie’ is a medium sized shrub which has spectacular flowers in spring. They start off white and age to red-pink, and make great cut flowers. The bush is 2 metres high and wide. The foliage has a spicy fragrance when crushed.
Best grown in a well drained soil in a sunny spot. Feed in spring with a low phosphorus native plant fertiliser. Give a light prune after flowering if desired to keep the plant habit dense. Can take light frost.
