Myoporum parvifolium purpurea – Boobialla

An easy care low ground cover which creates a dense mat of fine-leaved foliage with purple toned new growth. It gets small white flowers in spring through summer. Great to deter weed growth and to cover slopes and banks, and can be a lawn substitute for low traffic places. Grows to around 3metres wide and 30 cms high. Frost and drought tolerant. Best in well drained soil and sunny spot, but an adaptable plant for most conditions, including saline soils.
