Alyogyne Little Al
The latest addition to the Kings Park Series is this rare, ground-hugging form of Alyogyne. Flowers emerge as a dark purple and fades to a mid purple. Like Hibiscus, individual flowers have a short life however the plant repeat blooms for many months in warmer weather. This tough variety is a good choice for ground cover use in domestic and commercial applications.
Height to: 40cm
Width to: 1.5m
Planting: Plant in full or part sun position with well drained soils. Little Al can be used as a ground cover and is a nice way to fill gaps in the garden.
Watering: Little Al is used to a Mediterranean climate (warm, wet winters and hot, dry summers) but adapt well to many parts of Australia, especially coastal locations. Plant shouldn't need any supplementary watering once established.
Fertiliser: Alyogyne are not especially phosphorus sensitive, so you needn’t necessarily have to use a native plant fertiliser. Feed in autumn and spring with controlled release fertiliser to promote good plant health.
Pruning: There shouldn’t be any need to prune Little Al unless you want to shape it. If you do want to tidy it up, don’t cut it back too hard. Trim after flowering has ceased.
