Scaevola aemula ‘Aussie Salute’ – Fan Flower

A vigorous but relatively short-lived soft-wooded perennial that forms a low mound. The distinguishing feature of this cultivar is its more upright habit than most forms of Scaevola aemula on the market. A great feature or pot plant that can flower for months. Feed with a good native fertiliser through the warm months of the year, watering afterwards to avoid leaf or root burn.
