Kunzea Pomifera  (Muntries) Emu Apples, Native Cranberries  A lovely dense groundcover with profuse white flowers in Spring. Drought & frost tolerant, it grows in most soils, including sandy & clay. Lime tolerant. Good ground covering plant for coastal locations. Prefers full sun, to semi-shade position. Prune to shape after flowering. Bird attracting.

The berries produced by these plants are about 1 centimetre, green with a tinge of red at maturity and have a flavour of a spicy apple. Crunchy in texture, muntries are said to contain up to four times more antioxidants than blueberries and provide natural waxes that are good for skin nourishment



Planting
: Cultivate soil before planting. Dig hole twice the width of the container. Remove plant from container and place into the hole so that soil level is the same as the surrounding ground. Fill hole firmly and water in even if the soil is moist.

Care: Always ensure regular watering is provided for your new plants. The plants may need watering for around 12 weeks or until they are established depending on time of year and weather conditions once planted. 

Good mulching will assist to reduce weeds and maintain moisture levels. Maintain fresh growth, shape and promote dense habit by pruning after main flowering time. Feed in early Spring with a low phosphorus fertiliser.



Using tubestock is a great advantage for planting in your garden as they will establish quickly with the appropriate care.

Plants are supplied as tubestock in 42mm wide pots. Your plant will be established in its pot and ready to plant out.
