The rare pink form of our native bracelet honey myrtle, a pretty shrub for cooler exposed sites and coastal gardens. It's a great windbreak, shelter from sea spray, wildlife hedge, and street tree, as it doesn't get too tall.
APPEARANCE : Hardy native fast-growing shrub to small tree with slender rosemary-like leaves and cylinders of pale lilac-pink flowers like a bottlebrush, produced from spring to summer. Found in the wild in SA, VIC and TAS, with some in southern WA, ACT, and NSW coasts, usually in coastal and rivermouth sites. USE FOR : Native gardens and coastal plantings as a low hedge or feature shrub. PLANTING : Tolerates most soil types, and a range of planting conditions. Plant in full sun to encourage flowering. Tolerates light frost and moderate drought once established. CARE : Mulch and water well, prune after flowering to encourage compact growth habit. HEIGHT & WIDTH : 2.5 - 15 m H x 2 m W, though usually not more than 6m H in gardens. YOUR PLANTS : These plants 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.
