Asterolasia species ‘Dungowan Creek’

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.
