An Exuberant Emu Bush

25 Aug 2018 3:11 PM | Anonymous

At our granddaughter’s school, in western Sydney, there has recently been an extensive planting of natives. This will supplement the existing plantings undertaken a few years ago. Amongst these older plantings there is a beautiful Eremophila "Aurea". This 1 m by 1.5 m shrub is covered with bright yellow tubular flowers. The mass of blooms light up the surrounding garden. Unfortunately there are no honeyeaters in the area to take advantage of the copious quantity of nectar produced by the flowers.

If you have only room for one Emu Bush in your garden then "Aurea" may be the one for you.
