Ozothamnus diosmifolius ‘Radiance’ – Rice Flower

A compact small shrub that has aromatic curry-scented leaves and clusters of white flowers all year round that are pink in bud. Trim back after each flower flush to trigger a new burst of blooms. This is a great feature or pot plant , and would also make an eye catching low hedge. Likes a sunny spot. Feed with a good native plant food in the warmer months, being sure to water in well after fertilizing to prevent leaf burn. Ozothamnus make superb long lasting cut flowers, and cutting them for this use will help stimulate new flowering growth as well.
