Description

2 m shrub for sun or semi-shade. Beautiful sprays of white flowers attract birds and insects. Attracts bees, butterflies and other insects, birds, suitable for coastal gardens in that it copes well with dry sandy soils, strong winds, and intense sunlight. As it has non-invasive roots and maintains a rather neat shape, it is a good choice as a small tree for small gardens and does will in a large container.
