How to care for your Rosa Banksia Lutea
- Soil: The plant prefers well-draining soil with a slightly acidic pH. If the soil is heavy or clay-like, consider adding compost or sand to improve drainage.
- Watering: It should be watered regularly, keeping the soil evenly moist but not waterlogged. In hot and dry weather, the plant may need watering more frequently.
- Sunlight: The plant prefers full sun to partial shade. In hot climates, some afternoon shade may be beneficial to protect the plant from the harsh sun.
- Fertilisation: The plant will benefit from occasional fertilisation with a balanced fertiliser, especially in the Spring when it is starting to grow new leaves and flowers.
- Pruning: Regular pruning will encourage the plant to produce new growth and promote a full, bushy shape. It is best to prune the plant in the late Winter or early Spring before new growth begins.
By following these guidelines, you can ensure that your Rosa Banksia Lutea will thrive and provide you with its stunning yellow flowers for years to come.
