Allocasuarina verticillata ‘Noodles’ – She-Oak


Noodles is a dwarf shrub, growing to only half to a metre high, and is a great easy care landscaping plant. It has grey green wiry foliage that creates interesting textural effects in the garden. Grows in full sun to part shade, and does well in most soil types as long as it gets good drainage. Good for coastal sites, and tolerates dry spells once established. Feed with a good low phosphorus native fertilizer.
