Philotheca ‘Cascade of Stars’ – 180MM

(Not currently available to be ordered)

I am Wax Flower. My family originated from Coastal NSW

Botanic Name: Philotheca buxifolius ‘Cascade of Stars’

Mounding – Bird and bee attracting

I am naturally compact and have masses of soft pink buds which open to white star shaped flowers upon elegant cascading light green aromatic foliage during early spring. My flowers attract bees and beneficial insects from far and wide. I like my roots kept fairly cool but am very low maintenance and hardy in a range of soils and conditions. I look great mass planted, in borders and do well when planted in pots. I am a great Australian Native plant.
