Philotheca buxifolia hybrid “Starstruck”Commonly know as:
- Pot Sizes: 150 mm, 200 mm
- Growth Habitat: SS
- Flowering Times: SPR
“Starstruck” is a wonderful new, small-growing hardy hybrid Philotheca.
During late winter into spring it is smothered in delicate pink buds that burst open into a wonderful display of pail pink flowers that fade into a clear white star. It is a highly adaptable plant with aromatic foliage. Makes a good border, informal hedge or mass planting. Grows and flowers best in well drained soil in a full sun. If the soil is poorly drained a raised garden bed is recommended. Alternatively, “Starstruck” makes a fine pot specimen (use a premium Australian native potting mix). Tolerates frost and extended dry periods. Grows 0.8-1.2 m high by 1-1.2 m across.
