ยป Improved form of Eremophila nivea introduced by Philip Vaughan. This improved form of the popular Australian plant Eremophila nivea is far less suseptible to disease and foliage damage than the normal form. The beautiful silvery grey foliage is attractive on its own, but when the vivid blue flowers appear it is an arresting sight. In fact the foliage is so soft to the touch it's hard to believe it belongs to a plant. Grafted onto a hardy rootstock to make it suitable under a range of conditions. Performs best in full sun or light shade, in well-drained soil. Apply a thick mulch above the roots to suppress weeds and conserve moisture, but keep it away from the trunk. Trim lightly after flowering to maintain a compact habit. Care must be taken to remove ALL growth below the graft union or these shoots will grow through the grafted canopy and eventually overrun your plant. 1.5m x 1.5m. Suitable for large containers. Drought tolerant once established. Supplier: Kuranga Native Nursery. Supplier: Pinewood Nursery.
