Thryptomine

Thryptomine

Post by Billndee on 9th August 2009, 21:47

I think that is how you spell it. I have a few bushes of al low growing cultivar of the native Thryptomine growing inder some of my leggy rose bushes. It flowers in the winter with tiny pink flowers and is altogether a light looking frothy type of bush that covers the rose stems fairly well. When it has finished flowering i cut it back to keep it bushy.
pH incompatiblity could be a problem with the roses but I seem to be getting away with it. The roses have to get by with less lime.

How does it (I think it's called Thryptomene...) handle the rose ferts Dee? The prostrate mint bush I have is a native too and doesn't seem to mind the ferts. either.

I try to avoid the root area of the native plant when I fertilize the roses. It may get a little. Seems to work.

I recently asked a native nurserywoman what she feeds her native plants to keep them nice and green and growing and she said she just uses thrive...so thats what ive been using and as long as its only a weak strength it doesnt seem to hurt them. so im not going to be too worried about having them near roses and such. Its proteas and the like that will cark it at the first hint of fert.
