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.
