Agonis 'Midnight Shadow' is famed for its incredible dark foliage colour which it maintains year round. The leaves are a stunning deep purple with a hint of claret red tones for extra interest. With a fast growth rate, 'Midnight Shadow' produces quick results. Great for new gardens and those wanting something just a bit different. Agonis 'Midnight Shadow' is cold and dry tolerant, making it suitable for a wide range of applications.

Choose a well drained soil in a sunny location for optimum results. This variety is dry tolerant once established, requiring just an occasional deep soak during periods of extended heat. Feed in spring with a slow release fertiliser formulated for natives according to the manufacturers directions. As this is a small tree, it's also advised that this plant be supported at the time of planting until established. Do this by using two/three stakes around the plant, and connected one third to half way up the stem with a flexible piece of material to enable the plant to naturally move in light winds while keeping the rootball firmly in place.

• Feature plant in garden beds • Stunning in large containers • Striking colour works well against lime green foliage • Impressive when planted up against a contrasting colour background such as a painted wall or fence
