Product Description

An Australian native, Eriostemon 'White Star' is an evergreen, hardy shrub that will bring months of colour and form to your garden. Going by many names including the Long-leaf Waxflower and the Australian Native Daphne, this hardy evergreen shrub is a scented wonder, worthy of a place in any garden.

A truly eye-catching display, the beautifully fragrant flowers contrast magically with the waxy green leaves and will attract pollinators, such as butterflies and bees into your garden. Long flowering from April through to August, striking clusters of lustrous white, star-shaped flowers look as though they have been carved from wax and burst from pristine white buds. Its fragrance is certainly on par with Daphne, and similarly, it also thrives in free-draining soil in a sunny, sheltered spot.

Suitable for any garden situation from contemporary urban plantings to cottage garden styles, the compact nature of this plant also makes it ideal for patio container displays.

Hardy to -5C, Eriostemon is easy to grow and maintain, and we recommend planting in patio containers where they will thrive in sunny or a partially shaded area and can be brought under cover if freezing temperatures threaten.

Supplied as an established plant in a 15cm Pot ready for potting on or planting out.

Plant Information

Top Tips

Eriostemon dislikes root disturbance so consider carefully where you want it to grow.

Care Guide

Planting Advice for Eriostemon 'White Star':

  • Prefers well-drained soils in full sun or part shade.
  • Dig a planting hole 3 x wider than the roots of the shrub you're planting and mix some well-rotted compost or manure with the soil from the hole and use this to re-fill once the shrub is in place.
  • We've found that a square hole is better than a round one as the new roots, once they reach the edges tend to grow in a circle round the circumference of the hole whereas when they reach the corners of a square hole, they find it easier to grow through.
  • Before planting soak container-grown shrubs thoroughly and allow to drain.
  • Remove the plant from its pot and tease out a few of the roots.
  • Add Mycorrhizal fungi to the roots when planting to help plants establish quicker.
  • Place your shrub in the hole at the same level at the pot.
  • Refill the hole with the earth removed (backfilling) and firm in the soil with your heel, avoiding the root ball
    Water well and mulch around the base of the plant with a collar, compost, gravel, bark etc.
  • If you're planting into pots, place some old rocks, stones or gravel in the bottom of the pot for drainage and ballast.
  • Use the best compost you can buy and some sand or grit for drainage.

 

Aftercare Advice for Eriostemon:

  • Feed twice a year with a slow release fertiliser (once in spring and again in the autumn).
  • Once established the plant can withstand extended dry periods and is tolerant of frosts.
  • We recommend planting in patio containers so that they can be brought under cover if freezing temperatures threaten.

 

Pruning Advice for White Star:

  • Can be tip pruned after flowering to promote a bushy habit, however, if pruned too hard plants can be slow to recover.
  • Once established the plant can withstand extended dry periods and is tolerant of frosts
