Agonis flexuosa ‘Indigo’ – Willow Peppermint

The dark burgundy, near black foliage colour and handy size make this a great garden and landscaping plant. Unpruned it grows to around 5 metres tall, making it a good screen and hedge plant, it can also be pruned to the desired size and shape. Regular clipping will ensure a dense growth habit. An eye catching plant for contrasting foliage effects, it is also good for containers and topiary. Likes a well drained soil in a sunny or part shaded spot. Good for coastal plantings. It is susceptible to myrtle rust in warm areas.
