This very rare plant originates from Dungowan Dam in north eastern NSW and features soft grey green oval leaves and gorgeous white starry flowers in spring and summer. It needs a well drained spot so a pot is ideal or perhaps a rockery where it can feature. Trim it back by about 20% when it has finished flowering to encouarge more flowers for next year.

WHERE TO GET YOUR PLANT
Once you have found the plant that looks right for you, the next step is where to buy it.
Most nurseries stock a good range of plants, but due to space and supplies, they may not always have the plant that you are searching for in stock. If they don’t, they may be able to order it in for you if you request it.
Specialist nurseries are also able to give great advice, and if they don’t have the plant you have planned on, they can often suggest alternatives that will also work well for you.
