Availability fluctuates on this one so feel free to inquire even if it says sold out. Cuttings received from our friend Maurits in Holland who is obsessed with cold hardy Mediterranean style plantings. He is of that elite genre of indefatigable plant sleuths that source and share good plants and to whom we all owe heaps of gratitude for the dissemination. This is essentially a low evergreen groundcover - to 8" tall - in the Myrtaceae known from the Australian alpine area of Kosciuszko National Park but this clone hails from Mount Buffalo National Park in Victoria with Mount Buffalo being snow-covered in the winter. Better yet, this was collected from a frost pocket area. And to think this has profuse creamy flowers with an exuberance of stamens - it is nearly too much in one little package. Zone 8 for sure, likely zone 7. Please do comparative pricing on this one - we suspect it will be hard to do!
