Native grasses and friends. An exciting thing is happening in the world of Australian plants. Wild species that have tantalised gardeners in the past are now being improved to create a diverse palette of new varieties that offer all kinds of advantages. In particular, the necessity for water-wise, low maintenance gardens has inspired interest in plants that can be used as ground covers that will not only suppress weeds and erosion but also look fantastic.

Euphorbia 'Stardust' is a tough waterwise perennial plant with a cloud of starry white flowers in summer to autumn. Though it is a nearly zero maintenance plant, it will look good in most areas of Australia from the tropics to cooler zones. It is frost tender, so in cool climates it is treated as an annual plant. It looks lovely as a container plant as well as superb as a garden plant, and can take shallow soils and dry periods. Fast growing with a neat mounded habit. Does well in sun to shade. Good for coastal sites.
