Lomatia myricoides


Add to wishlist Remove from wishlist
A graceful thin-leaved evergreen shrub from Australia which has not been even slightly damaged by our occasional winter lows to 10F. Great texture and the profuse white clove-scented flowers in midsummer sends our various bee species into a frenzy of nectar and pollen gathering! Phosphorous sensitive so skip the fertilizer. This can tolerate shade as it is a forest understory plant but the flowering is better with more sun.
