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.
