Brunfelsia Sweet & Petite - yesterday today tomorrow
Living up to its name, it is sweet-scented and petite in size, topping out at around a metre around and slender in profile. Great if you want a low hedge or feature shrub but hate the clipping that goes with maintaining it! Flowers in shades of purple, lilac and white will cover a happy bush spring through to autumn.

PLANTING : Site in a sunny frost-free spot where it can get regular rainfall or irrigation for best results. Mulch and water well.
CARE : Warm climates and regular watering are preferred by this plant but worth a go in sheltered sites further south. Suited to a full sun position in the garden.
