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.
