Plant Species of the genus Bauera

Information about this genus
Name: Bauera
Cultivation: CULTIVATION: Apart from being fairly frost tender, Bauera is easily grown and undemanding. They do best in well-drained, light, sandy soil with added humus for moisture retention. They prefer to avoid extremes of heat and cold, so some shade from the hottest afternoon sun is appreciated, as is winter shelter. Occasional trimming will keep the bushes compact. Propagate by seed or half-hardened cuttings.
Description: Bauera is an eastern Australian genus of just 4 species. Named by Sir Joseph Banks in honor of two German botanical artists, the genus was among the first Australian plants to be described. Once included in the saxifrage family, these evergreen shrubs are now included among the butterknife bushes (Cunoniaceae) and some botanists now name the family after this genus?the Baueraceae. They are characterized as wiry-stemmed shrubs clothed with small leaves, and in spring and early summer display small but colorful flowers.
