Eremophila glabra ‘Kalbarri Carpet’ – Tar Bush

 

A lovely ground cover shrub, with dense soft grey foliage and beautifully contrasting yellow-gold flowers. Main flowering is in spring and summer, with spot flowers in winter and autumn, and birds and other nectar feeders love them. It has a one to two metre spread, and is drought and frost tolerant. Needs a well drained soil and low phosphorus fertiliser, and dislikes excess humidity. Mass plant, use on banks and retaining walls, good for large containers.
