Where it thrives: NSW, ACT, VIC, TAS, SA, WA and South East QLD (not suited to Northern QLD).

Pruning: Prune 1-3 times per year after flowering for a tidy hedge, more frequent pruning will result in a tidier hedge. This plant can be left unpruned as it has a naturally tidy shape, however, for Northern NSW and QLD pruning is recommended.

Establishment & Extra Care: 

  • Water as required for 8-13 weeks until established.
  • Plant in a well mulched garden, a chunky mulch is recommended.
