Myoporum floribundum – Weeping Myoporum

An attractive large shrub, with unusual weeping leaves on long arched branches. While it is attractive when not in flower, it becomes even more eye catching in mid spring to early summer when the branches are covered with profuse small white flowers, making it look like the branches are covered in snow. It can be grown in sun to part shade, it can get a bit leggy in full sun, more profuse with some shelter from taller plants  (it naturally grows in sheltered gullies). Adaptable to a wide range of soil types, it performs best with good drainage. It is a magnet for all sorts of native insects when in flower, making it a great habitat plant.
