Carissa grandiflora 'Desert Star' (syn. Carissa macrocarpa 'Desert Star'), commonly known as "Desert Star", is a small, compact shrub with rounded, glossy, green leaves. The shrub is regularly adorned with attractive white, sweetly scented, star-shaped flowers. A drought tolerant and extremely hardy plant, needing little to no maintenance, makes it an ideal plant for your garden. It can stand alone, but is a superb low hedge when mass planted or when used as a mounding plant. This plant has small thorns so can be a bonus in areas of your garden where you wish to deter foot traffic.
