Hardiness level Amber
A beautiful evergreen large shrub or small tree from New Zealand. Fragrant white flowers in summer and autumn. Roughly pyramidal in shape it could reach 4 metres over a 20 year period. Clippable, white flowering and fluffy.
Sun to dappled shade, best in a post sheltered from north winds. Good on sand, loam or chalk, preferring moist but well drained soil. A Country Park Nursery creation, ex alumnus Paul Boosey now operates the business founded by his grandpa.
N.B. When clipping several plants with the same tool, have a bucket containing a 5% bleach solution and swish your blades around for 30 seconds between plants to sterilise them. This will help avoid the chance of cross contamination of disease.
As with all woody plants, plant high, exposing as much of the taper at the base of the trunk as possible. Allowing soil to accumulate round the base of a tree can be fatal. Keep very well watered when first planted.
