Ozothamnus rosmarinifolius ‘Silver Jubilee’ – Rice Flower

A very hardy medium sized shrub, this cultivar has silvery foliage and cream-white heads of long lasting flowers in summer. Grows to a metre and a half high and half a metre wide approximately, and with a pronounced column shape, making it a useful plant for those difficult landscaping spots like driveways and beside paths. It is best in full sun and needs a well drained soil. Very tolerant of both frost and drought, and does well in coastal gardens. An all over tip prune or harder prune after flowering will encourage a more dense growth habit.

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.
