Aussie Flat Bush™ Rhagodia is a low growing and compact form of saltbush.
This compact form makes a great ground cover and is ideal for inland and coastal situations.
It performs better if it is pruned annually or more often if a manicured look is desired.
Its blue foliage looks great in mass plantings, is equally as good as a garden specimen plant, and is excellent as a low maintenance roadside plant.
