ยป Small evergreen Australian native shrub with spectacular blue blooms over a long period. Features: Dwarf, woody stemmed shrub, prized for its massed display of very deep blue flowers. Flowers age from a deep blue to a paler blue. Grey-green foliage. Plants are sometimes spread by suckers. Originating from Moora, North of Perth. Suited to very free-draining soils or potting mix in full sun. Tolerant of sandy to clay loams, light frosts, hard pruning, light dappled shade and hot dry sites. Tip prune young plants regularly. Light application of slow release fertilizer may be beneficial. Mulch well using wood chips or pebbles. Water over extended dry periods by deep soaking during a cool part of the day. Great in rockeries or hanging baskets, mixed with Australian natives and/or exotics. Supplier: Kuranga Native Nursery. Status: Defunct.
