Polygala myrtifolia x oppositifolia 'Polylab'

full sun
part shade
height 1m
spread 1m

A terrific dwarf plant that has quickly won favour for its outstanding pot and garden performance. Its naturally compact, mounded habit makes it great choice for those wanting a well shaped plant with little effort. It makes a great patio and deck specimen for those seeking a bright splash of colour. It loves the sun too, performing well in the heat. Responds very well to a quick prune, that said, this is rarely required as its habit is naturally so dense and compact. The green foliage is set off by its abundant flowers nearly all year round. Long lasting displays of bright purple pea-like flowers make it particularly useful for those looking to impress with a vivid colour scheme. Imagine it planted against a bright wall or in a colourful decorative pot. It is well suited to coastal zones as it has high resistance to salinity and is also frost hardy. Plant in medium containers, as a low border or in the garden bed for fast results with high impact.

Plant in a well-drained soil. Prefers a full sun location for optimum results. Although naturally compact, you can prune to shape if desired after flowering period. Feed with a slow-release general purpose fertiliser has low water requirements once established.

• Low borders and hedging up to 70cm • Containers to brighten up entertainment areas • Mixed garden beds • Patios and courtyards • Formal garden plantings • General garden and landscape use
