Philotheca myoporoides ‘Profusion’ – Wax Flower

 

A charming and hardy small shrub that adapts well to a wide range of environments. The smallish leaves have a wonderful apple-like fragrance when crushed. A spectacular plant when in flower in winter and spring, but also looks attractive for the rest of the year. A great plant for a shrubbery or pot. A very good cut flower as well. Good in dappled shade but can take a sunny position as well.
