Casuarina 'Cousin It' is a prostrate shrub, with an irresistable cascade of foliage. Wonderfully dense, it will out compete weeds  with its ground covering habit. A very adaptable coastal plant, adaptable to most soils. Flowers are insignificant but the foliage more than makes up for it. Great for rockeries or spilling down embankments.
