Eremophilas as ground cover: Eremophila ‘Kalbarri Carpet’

, , , ,

I have been experimenting more and more with Eremophilas, starting off with the easy to grow ones like Eremophila maculata in its many forms, but this one here, that is super hardy even in humidity and clay soils, is by far my favourite.

I am quite obsessed with silver and grey foliage,I can’t get enough of it in my own garden and use it quite a lot in my designs to brighten up an area or provide contrast to the green on green of many plantings.

So this is Eremophila glabra yellow prostrate, the flowers are quite showy and stand out from a distance against the silver leaves. It will even take a little shade if pushed. Here it has been planted with other silver leaf species, see what a beautiful carpet it makes?
