Hypocalymma angustifolium ‘Peach Myrtle’
Features: Small Australian native shrub with a semi weeping habit. Produces white flowers in the leaf axels that changes to a peachy pink colour and then to a red as they age. Flowers are produced along the entire stamps and open from the lower parts of the stem first.
Conditions: Suited to full sun or part shade positions in most soil types as long as the drainage is adequate. Frost and drought hardy once established.
For best results: Tip prune young plants regularly to develop a neat habit. Mulch around the base of the plant to suppress weeds and retain moisture in the drier months.
