A vigorous but relatively short-lived soft-wooded perennial that forms a low mound. The distinguishing feature of this cultivar is its more upright habit than most forms of Scaevola aemula on the market. A great feature or pot plant that can flower for months. Feed with a good native fertiliser through the warm months of the year, watering afterwards to avoid leaf or root burn.

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.
