The ultimate silver shrub, this strange and space-age bush is ridgy-didge Aussie, often seen in frontline coastal spots on the southern coast. Like true Aussies, it's tough as; standing up to wind, sea spray, drought, frost, chalky alkaline soils, poor dry soils and baking sun. Tropical humidity and overwatering might kill it off but otherwise it's super-resilient.
