Chamelaucium – Eric John
Chamelaucium x verticordia – ‘Eric John’
A lovely hybrid of Chamelaucium and Verticordia with the benefits of both plants. It is a medium shrub growing to 1.5m tall and 1.5m wide with thin, blue/ green foliage arranged in clusters on long stems. In winter and spring it produces clumps of waxy, pink flowers.
It is perfect as a specimen shrub, informal hedge, mass plantings and mixed shrubberies. It is great for native, cottage, waterwise and low maintenance gardens.
It should be planted in full sun to part shade in well drained soils.
