Scaevola aemula ‘Aussie Crawl’ – Fan Flower

A wonderful hardy ground covering plant to add colour to garden beds and containers for many months of the year. Peak flowering times are spring and again in summer and autumn, with spot flowers at other times, with a profusion of blue-mauve fan shaped flowers. It does best in well drained soil with some watering in dry times, with an occasional feed with a good native fertilizer in the warm months. Growth habit is compact and mounding, and it will spill over edges and the sides of pots beautifully. It can be trimmed to size if needed.
