If you've been to Coffs Harbour you might have been lucky enough to see this native growing in the wild, in the only spot it grows naturally. Endangered in the wild (you can read about the government recovery plan here) it has been cultivated for us gardeners to grow, to save the species for the future.
Zieria prostrata - headland ziera, pink crystals, carpet star

APPEARANCE: Dense-growing Australian native groundcover endemic to a location in northern NSW. Neat small glossy green foliage is aromatic when crushed; pale pink buds open to small four-petalled white flowers in spring and summer which attract beneficial pollinators.
USE FOR: Groundcover and living mulch; helping to control weeds. Ideal for coastal gardens. Attracts bees and other beneficial insects in wildlife gardens. Suitable for pots and containers.
PLANTING : Prefers dappled shade or filtered light protected from hot afternoon sun. Plant in well-draining, sandy loam to sandy soils. Frost and drought tolerant once established, and tolerates salt spray from the sea.
CARE: Mulch and water regularly until established. Prune as required, and fertilise plants growing in very poor soils. Use a low phosphate fertiliser formulated for natives. Very disease resistant.
HEIGHT & WIDTH: 15 cm x 1m.
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.
