Eremophila glabra ‘Silver Ball’ – Emu Bush

An attractive and useful shrub that has a  naturally compact shape and silver grey leaves. Use for colour contrast against other plants or where the silver foliage will light up the garden. Does well in coastal gardens as well as inland and withstands frost and drought. It has a profusion of small yellow flowers which small honey eating birds like. A light trim and a small amount of a good native fertilizer once a year is all it needs in the way of maintenance. Good for alkaline soils.
