Another Australian Native we love…
Maireana sedifolia ‘Pearl Bluebush’

A wonderful companion to succulents and other drought tolerant species.

- Deer resistant (we think, still testing)
- Up to 3’ tall
- Drought tolerant
- Slow growing
- Borderline hardy: 20 – 25 degrees (needs some winter protection)
Coleonema pulchrum ‘Sunset Gold’ provides a golden spotlight on the silver-white foliage of Maireana sedifolia. Petula Test Garden
The silver foliage is an excellent color companion to virtually every color in the garden, but choose your garden partners wisely, this plant is a slow grower and is already being swallowed by these vigorous petunias in the Petula Test Garden. The photo above was taken in early June and the one show below was take in mid-July.
