Description

This little guy is a low maintenance cutie with his tight, dense foliage and compact growth. He gets to a max height of 2m but can be easily-pruned to maintain the desired height. He looks great as a low hedge, as a topiary in formal gardens and even does well in pots.

For the best results plant him in a spot that will get full sun or part shade and in well-draining soil. He is a tough little guy who does well in temperate and subtropical climates of Australia and can handle light frosts, salt and drought. Plant him anytime throughout the year but just make sure if frosts are predicted to cover him up.

In Spring you will be rewarded with cute fluffy, cream flowers that will attract butterflies and bees followed by fleshy pink berries that are a popular bush tucker food.
