Agonis flexuosa ‘Nana’ – Willow Peppermint

A dwarf shrub with dense foliage, it has reddish new growth and naturally compact growth habit. An outstanding hedge or low growing screen, it is a nice low maintenance plant. Responds well to pruning so can be shaped as required, if left unpruned it can develop a rather wide loose habit. Best in a sunny position, but will also grow in light shade. Very waterwise once established. Feed with a good native fertilizer in warm weather, watering afterwards to avoid leaf or root burn.
