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.

How far apart should I space my plants ?

Hedging plants - space at 700mm, otherwise, 1.2m apart.

Our plants are beautifully grown, mature tube stock with well developed roots. They are guaranteed sun-hardened, can be planted directly into the ground and are excellent performers for your garden.

We carefully package your plants into a customised box to ensure safe transport, healthy plants and delivery to your door.

 

Ready to Roll

Dig a hole, drop them in. Our plants can be inserted straight into the ground without any fuss.

Held longer

We hold our plants back from sale until they are big and strong. Out of the box, your plants will thrive.

Hand Picked

We hand select all our plants prior to shipping. That means premium stock and no duds.

Maturity

We use a deeper tube to promote a mature root system. This helps get your plants off to a punchy start when they hit the ground.
