A great rewarding mid sized shrub for screening and hedging, especially for those difficult shady spots, as it will still grow dense and will flower in all positions. A very hardy, easy care and fast growing shrub. It has deep green fine leaves which are aromatic and the foliage grows dense to the ground. In spring to mid summer it is covered in masses of white flowers, and will flower well in shady spots as well as sun. It is butterfly attracting. It grows to around 2 metres high and wide, but can be pruned to smaller sizes.. Does well in most soil types, tolerates frost, and can take dry soil to constantly moist. If needed, lightly prune to shape after flowering.
Green Screen is a hybrid of Leionema elatius and L. lamprophyllum.

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.
