Coleonema album - white diosma

Back in stock: 4-6 weeks
Out of stock
Pretty white flowers, aromatic fine foliage, likes sunny spots and sandy soil - it's not a native but you'd never know it! Lovely winter-flowering shrub for coastal gardens, great for attracting beneficial insects and keeping away the bad ones. Pair with the smaller pink diosma.
