Bulletproof landscape plants. Not all plants are equal. Many require the soil and climate (amongst other things) to be 'just right'. The plants described in this article are the ones that deserve the title of 'bulletproof' and are a good starting point for an easy-care garden.
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.
