Leionema ‘Green Screen’ – Phebalium


A great rewarding mid sized shrub for screening and hedging, especially for those difficult shady spots, as it will still grow dense and will flower in all positions. A very hardy, easy care and fast growing shrub. It has deep green fine leaves which are aromatic and the foliage grows dense to the ground. In spring to mid summer it is covered in masses of white flowers, and will flower well in shady spots as well as sun. It is butterfly attracting. It grows to around 2 metres high and wide, but can be pruned to smaller sizes.. Does well in most soil types, tolerates frost, and can take dry soil to constantly moist. If needed, lightly prune to shape after flowering.
