Description

Both the blooms and the foliage of Eriostemon myoporoides have a fresh, zesty fragrance which could easily be described as gin and tonic scented! This half hardy shrub is blooms in winter and spring with delicate star-shaped flowers above a bushy mound of linear evergreen foliage. Also known as wax flower, it’s long been a favourite spring stem with florists for its long-lasting blooms and heady fragrance. This shrub can be kept compact, as it not fully hardy it’s a great addition to a conservatory where it will provide winter interest. You can also grow it outdoors throughout the year, as long as it is in a sheltered location where it will not be subject to frost or harsh conditions. Height: 2m (6’). Spread: 2m (6’).

Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.

How to Grow
Grow in a conservatory, cool greenhouse or sheltered part of the garden where it won’t get hit by frost in winter. If growing indoors, choose a well-lit position away from a heat source. Pot up into ericaceous compost and water moderately whenever the surface of the soil appears dry. Feed indoor-grown plants regularly between spring and autumn while in growth.
More Info
After flowering, lightly trim the plant and transfer to a sheltered spot outdoors when all risk of frost has passed. Return to their position indoors by the end of September to avoid plants being damaged by frost.
