    I love those fluffy little white flowers against that gorgeous grey green foliage.
    I can see this plant becoming a great landscaping go to here in OZ.
    I'll have to investigate whether it is available here.

    Agreed, it will do very well in OZ, as your climate is similar to our climate here in SA.

    Yip indeed it is a beautiful plant and not readily sold in nurseries here, so I was very lucky to have found one about a year or two ago. I almost killed it recently though, when I decided to transplant it . :shock:

    I transplanted it from very poor soil into soil with lots of rich compost and mulch on top. Within about 1-2 weeks the leaves started drying up and the plant looked like it was not gonna survive, so I planted it back into poor soil this past week and now its perking up again and all happy.:twothumbsup:

    Conclusion: This plant does not like overly nutrient rich soil, certainly does not like cool or damp roots and most definitely prefers poor dry soil - Lesson learned.
