An easy care and drought tolerant medium sized shrub, it has masses of papery white clusters of pure white flowers. Does best in light and well drained soils, if planting into heavier soil, mound it up to improve the drainage. Tip prune when young to encourage a compact habit, once established it will benefit from harder pruning after flowering. Give it a handful of slow release native fertiliser after pruning. The flowers are great for cutting for floral work, and are long lasting and can be dried. Pick in bud before the flowers open.
