Elaeocarpus – Green Dream
Elaeocarpus reticulatus – ‘Green Dream’
A versatile native shrub growing to 3m tall and 2m wide with dense, green leaves. In spring it flowers spectacularly with white, skirt shaped flowers that are followed by eye catching, bright blue berries.
It perfect for screening, hedging and topiary as it has a dense habit. It is also able to be grown as a small feature tree.
It is able to grow in part shade or full sun in well drained soils. It is drought tolerant but does not tolerate heavy frosts. Pruning is not necessary, but it will thicken and stay more compact with regular pruning.
