Description

Carissa grandiflora Desert Star (syn. Carissa macrocarpa 'Desert Star'), commonly known just as Desert Star, is a small, compact shrub with superb 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 her an ideal plant for your garden. She has small thorns so can be a bonus in areas of your garden where you wish to deter foot traffic.  

Quick Facts: 

  • What to use me for: mass planting, a feature planted for my attractive foliage and star-shaped flowers, coastal gardens

  • I grow to: 1.0m high, 1.0m wide

  • Where to place me: Full sun or part shade

  • How far to space me: for a nice hedge space 40-50cm 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.

Please take care when choosing your plants. Some plants are poisonous and individuals may be more sensitive or react differently
