Agathosma ovata

Originating in the Kluitjieskraal region between Tulbach, Wolseley, and Ceres, this compact evergreen shrub is commonly found throughout the Western Cape, to Kwazulu-Natal, and up into regions of Limpopo.

The beautiful star-shaped flowers grow in dense clusters and are situated closer to the tips of the branches, attracting pollinators from mid-autumn to spring.

The leaves have oils that protect the plants from pests and plant eaters.

An ideal water-wise plant that benefits from well-draining and humus-rich soils. The plants do well in full sun or semi-shaded areas, however shaded areas do affect flowering and flower colours. Can tolerate some frost when the plant is well established.

Standard packet contains approx. 15 seeds

No Petite option for this variety
