Agonis flexuosa 'Nana' - dwarf willow peppermint, dwarf willow myrtle

APPEARANCE :  Dwarf-sized native shrub with a compact dense habit and small white flowers during spring and summer. New growth emerges lime and rust, then ages to a soft green. Young leaves are more slender than the full-grown form, giving a more willow-like appearance from a young age.
ORIGIN : The parent tree is only found in the wild from north of Perth around the coast and inland to Albany
USE FOR : Hedging and edging, native gardens, wildlife gardens, coastal gardens, low maintenance gardens, topiary, water-wise gardens, bonsai, erosion control and container planting. Reportedly will grow under gum trees.
CLIMATE : Its native climate is Mediterranean - frost free, not too humid, hot and dry in the summer, cool and wet in the winter.
PLANTING : Full sun to light or dappled shade in any well-drained soil, especially sandy soils and limestone. This species is very waterwise once established.
CARE : Mulch and water regularly until the plant is established, usually around 12 weeks. Feed with a slow release native fertiliser during spring. Responds well to pruning so can be shaped as required, can develop a loose growth habit if left unpruned.
HEIGHT & WIDTH:  1 - 2 m H x 1 - 2 m W
YOUR PLANTS : These are tubestock plants, healthy young plants with new roots that will establish quickly in your garden. The pot size is 80mm high and 42 mm wide.
