Scaevola albida ‘Mauve Carpet’ – Fan Flower


A vigorous and relatively long-lived soft-wooded ground cover with small leaves. Small flower size is compensated for by the extremely floriferous habit. A very easy care plant once established, great as a feature, border, pot or hanging basket plant. Space plants a half a metre apart to achieve a real carpet effect. Main flowering is in spring and summer, with some flowers for most of the year. Best in a sunny spot, well drained soil. Tolerates light frost.
