Casuarina 'Shagpile' is a quirky ground covering low shrub that is tough and very hardy for planting in many diverse situations. It grows with soft long thin leaves, hugging the ground and flowing over mounds and down banks. It is tolerant of frost and dry spells, and needs minimal attention once established. Does well in most soil types, as long as they have reasonable drainage. It has dense weed supressing growth. Good for full and part sun, and for coastal areas. Great for poolside plantings as it is very tidy.
