olearia macrodonta jpeg

A really lovely evergreen flowering species suitable for informal hedging. Daisy Bush flowers profusely in July and August and is covered in small white flowers with yellow centres. It has a grey/green foliage sometimes appearing almost blue which is very attractive. Olearia x haastii hedging is one of the few flowering species suitable for coastal positions and very windy sites - all it needs is a sunny situation and a fairly fertile soil - so it's well worth an annual feed and mulch after pruning in April or May. Growth rate is average at about 30cm.
