- Very hardy
- Frost tolerant
- Hedging / screening
- Bird and butterfly attracting
This extremely hardy native shrub has a graceful pendulous habit with beautiful soft bronze/purple foliage becoming more striking in the cooler months.
It has masses of white flowers in late spring and summer.
Suited to cool temperate and sub-tropical climates, it seems to withstand the extreme weather that South Aust. Vic and N.S.W. can throw at it.
It prefers moist, well-drained clay or sandy loam soils, neutral to acid PH and feed with low phosphorous (native) fertiliser. Needs very little water once established.
There is minimal trimming required but will respond well to pruning for hedging purposes.
Being a native, ‘Starry Night’ is great for the birds and attracts butterflies.
