Persoonia chamaepitys – Mountain Geebung


A slow growing ground covering prostrate shrub with pine-like needle leaves and bunches of yellow to orange flowers in summer and autumn. It is difficult to propagate, but worth planting if you can find it, as it is a great hardy little plant as long as it gets a well drained soil. Good in sun or part shade, and under trees, but doesn’t like excess humidity. A very waterwise plant, and very attractive.
