Ozothamnus diosmifolius 'Radiance'
A great example of how good the common rice flower can look. Radiance bears multitudes of bright white flowers which appear as clusters atop mid-green foliage. It remains neat and compact, plus it flowers almost year round. Grown from tissue culture to ensure high healthy and reliable production performance.

Will grow in a wide range of climates from cool to sub-tropical, plus, will handle coastal conditions and light frosts. Mulching is recommended. Try them in a larger patio pot!
Watering: Will do best in moist soil however will normally perform quite well on natural rainfall without much supplementary watering. Water in extended dry periods.
Fertiliser: Feed with a general purpose controlled release fertiliser in spring.
Pruning: Trim back untidy plants but don’t cut back too hard into old wood.
