A great little plant for coastal gardens, as it likes sandy soils and will resist salty winds. Likes a sunny spot, but will also grow in part shade, though flowering will be lessened. It responds beautifully to pruning, and can be shaped for formal uses. Also good in containers. Flowers in late autumn to winter with small white blooms.

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.
