Olearia traversii Compacta



Olearia traversii Compacta is a useful, compact form of this popular hedging plant. Retaining all of the benefits of the original Olearia traversii  – a tough, quick growing, upright evergreen shrub, and ideal as a hedging plant when used in multiples. It displays glossy green leaves, which are silvery-white on the undersides, creating a lovely two-tone effect. Inconspicuous daisy-like flowers bloom on panicles in early summer.

It particularly makes a great coastal hedge, due to its tolerance of salt winds and dry, sandy soils.

Product Description

Olearia traversii Compacta doesn’t grow as tall as the standard, reaching up to around 1.5-2m tall, but forms a lovely dense, bushy hedge – and can of course be pruned to a smaller size if desired. A great one for smaller gardens.

Plant around 40-60cm / 18inches-2ft apart from one another or further if you don’t mind waiting a bit longer for a solid hedge to form. A hardy, coastal variety that enjoys full sun where possible, and a free draining soil. Pruning back at planting will help encourage strong root growth.
