Prostanthera ‘Poorinda Ballerina’ – Mint Bush

A small to medium dense shrub with small leaves and masses of white flowers in spring. Much tougher than other Prostantheras. Ballerina is an old time favourite native that has proven itself over many years to be a great garden plant. Can be clipped as a hedge or used as a feature shrub or pot plant. It is also good for low maintenance gardens, as it will still look good even with little care, and can be used for informal hedging and screening.
