Casuarina Cousin It

In stock

Unique, strange, fun! This popular plant has a character all of its own, with fine 'hairy' strands of evergreen cascading foliage, soft to touch. Use as a groundcover or feature plant in rockeries and hanging baskets, where it will spread to 1m across but only 10cm high.

Low maintenance, weed suppressing. Drought tolerant, but give it water and watch it grow green and lush.

"Our 'Cousin Its" arrived this morning, beautifully and securely packed, looking extremely healthy ... We do not have an enormous garden but every time we need new plants we will be back to you as our favourite plant nursery."
